  • Translation of the Classics of world literature into Venetian

    During the last centuries, several classics of the world literature have been partially or completely translated into the Venetian language. The Academia considers important to follow this good practice and to improve the value of these works by creating a net of translators, in order to optimize the effort and increase the number of world classics that can be read in Venetian language.

  • Lettering, font and new writing issues for 21st century

    The Academia believes that the Venetian writing would be enhanced by the development of a font series, with specific features. The typefaces we intend to design for Venetian will be able to represent at first sight the harmonic match between the writing and the sounding of the Venetian Language.

    Especially in Far Eastern cultures, the ability has been widely developed to blend language and art, with admirable results: the fusion of these two means of human expression can provide a rather new and exciting field of artistic experimentation for the Venetian community of artists and writers that the Academia encourages with particular attention.
