Titian was the most important painter of the Venetian Renaissance school. He was very innovative, as he introduced a whole new style of painting: up until Titian, the Michelangelo style was the ruling one, characterized by the importance of the lines. Titian, on the contrary, used to give more importance to colour and its relationship with light.

In Venice we can admire lots of his works, particularly its masterpiece, the "Assumption of the Virgin", kept in the Basilica di Santa Maria Gloriosa dei Frari.

Gondolas, canals, lights and colors ... this is Venice, the ancient city on the water, known worldwide for its architectural beauty and its mysterious and romantic atmosphere.
