There are two museums in Venice where you can find the works and some factors of Antonio Vivaldi’s life; the Museo della Musica and the Vivaldi Museum in the Ospedale della Pieta church just behind the orphanage.
The latter, however, requires an appointment to be visited and is not always open.
Antonio Vivaldi was actually a priest before he became a world-renowned composer and musician; he was nicknamed “The Red Priest”, “il Prete Rosso” in Italian, because of his vibrant red hair.
There are many sites and landmarks in Venice that reflect his history including exhbiits in museums, where he died and the setting where he worked all his life still stands and remains preserved for the generations after the 18th century.
There are four landmarks on St Mark’s Square that date back to the pre-renaissance period and those include the Basilica, the Ducale Palace, and the two tall columns in the Piazzetta of the Piazza San Marco.
