Museo di Storia Naturale di Venezia

Natural History Museum of Venice Giancarlo Ligabue



Starting in 2010, in collaboration with the Regione Veneto, the Museum of Natural History in Venice launched the Progetto ARVe (Atlante dei Ropaloceri del Veneto – Rhopalocera atlas of the Veneto) dedicated to learning more about butterflies of the Veneto.

This has seen the involvement of about 200 volunteers over a period of three years.

Upon the conclusion of the first phase of the project, the museum has organised a day dedicated to butterflies, with conferences for adults and educational activities for children.

On the same day, a photographic exhibition of the best images drawn from the project’s vast archive will be inaugurated.
