In 2017, an exhibition titled Registe alla Biennale Teatro 1934 - 2016 (Women Directors at the Biennale Teatro 1934 - 2016) opened in the Portego at Ca’ Giustinian. The exhibition was organised by La Biennale di Venezia showcasing materials from the collections of the Biennale Archives (ASAC - Archivio Storico delle Arti Contemporanee). The display in the ground floor of Ca’ Giustinian documented the presence of women directors at the Theatre Festival from its inception in 1934 until today. This tribute stemmed from the same concept behind the 45th International Theatre Festival (July 25th > August 12th 2017), which its Director Antonio Latella focused on the theme of direction by inviting only women directors.
The exhibition was made up of a selection of archival documents chosen by Antonio Latella comprising photographs, historical footage, playbills, posters, catalogues as well as the written correspondence with companies from the ASAC collections.
