About

The sixteen centuries of Venice

421-2021. This year Venice celebrates its 1600th anniversary with a monumental exhibition in the place that symbolises the power and glory of the Serenissima: the Doges’ Palace in St Mark’s Square. A great illustrated story that aims to tell the myth of Venice through the centuries, with a scenographic layout divided into 12 sections. Visitors can retrace the salient stages of the history and identity of Venice, which has been called upon several times to redesign its future, through works and documents by the greatest artists who have worked in the lagoon over almost a millennium – Carpaccio, Bellini, Titian, Veronese, Tiepolo, Rosalba Carriera, Guardi and Canaletto, right up to Canova, Hayez, Appiani; and then Pollock, Vedova, Tancredi, Santomaso – but also the many architects, talented men of art, writers and musicians who have accompanied its development. The last room is an invitation to reflect on the future, on safeguarding the heritage of this city and on the search for sustainability.
