Villa Hériot - Venice

The Garden of Venice has been inaugurated in 2015, at Villa Hériot, on the Giudecca Isle, with the first tree dedication to Armin T. Wegner, who appealed the leaders of his time asking to stop the genocides against the Armenians and The Jews. 

On March 6, 2020, it was celebrated the Day of the Righteous with the planting of  a myrtle tree and a jujube tree dedicated to the memory of Venetians "Righteous among the Nations": Giulio and Stella Levorato and Emilia Taroli (Sistes Paola) who, between 1944 and 1945 have helped jews families to escape from the deportation.  

Don’t miss the story of the Righteous and the memory of Good
