Devoted wives: two female portraits of the Eighteenth century
09 March 2012

Fondazione Querini Stampalia will be dedicating a meeting to Elena Mocenigo and Caterina Contarini, two women of the Querini Stampalia family, organized under the initiative “Dove. Donne a Venezia: Creatività, Economia, Felicità”. Madile Gambier, editor of several books on the Querini Stampalia family, will be presenting these two women through the precious testimony of family letters kept in the archives of Fondazione Querini. Margherita Stevanato and Roberta Barizza will be taking turns in reading significant extracts from the letters which highlight Elena and Caterina's roles within their family. The event will take place at Corte Giuseppe Mazzariol and will be enlivened by a break with biscuits and sweet wine in cooperation with Querinicaffè.
