Even the most hardened travelers have a place to come back. Corto Maltese, the famous character created by Hugo Pratt, has traveled extensively, but its "home", the place to take shelter and rest among family things, has always been Venice. Hence it could only be opened in Venice, the first house-museum dedicated to him. The project, conceived and realized by Manuela Marchesani, is inspired by the "home of Sherlock Holmes" in London. In the spaces made out in a beautiful Venetian palace, are placed a small museum, a laboratory design, a local exhibition for art exhibitions, recreational area and a library. Outside there's a court, and a beautiful garden with paterae and prattian lions on the walls. The creator has also involved in her adventure, Guido Fuga and Lele Vianello, students and collaborators of the "Master of Malamocco" as well as authors of the famous guide "Corto Sconto". The House of Corto Maltese is located in Rio Terà dei Biri (Cannaregio, 5394/B) email: info@lacasadicorto.it
