This year celebrates the 600th anniversary of the birth of Joan of Arc, who according to some saved France through divine will and according to others was the agent of the devil, a controversial historic figure who is depicted as a saint or a sinner.
To celebrate this anniversary, Association Culturale MusicaVenezia will present Hommage to Joan of Arc in collaboration with the Alliance Française of Venice, a concert which will include projections of manuscript illuminations of the 15th and 16th century and narration of salient facts of the life of the Virgin of Orleans, who saved her country after the invasion of the English.
