This exhibition will highlight approximately fifty artists books from the collection of this Italian collection.  The books to be featured in this exhibition were made in the print workshops of the Scuola mostly by Italian artists, such as Loretta Cappanera, Claudine, Giotto, Maria Lai, Stefania Missio, Bonizza Modolo, and Giuseppe Perezzan, as well as by international artists who held residencies at the Scuola's, including artists from Germany; France, Belgium and the United States.  The force behind this collection is Matilde Dolcetti, the Director of the Scuola, where her interest in artist's books has a powerful influence on the artists who work in this well equipped printshop in Venice.
