Visit of the Museum
There is a place in Venice where a person passionate of art can enjoy some of the greatest masterpieces of Venetian painting, the Accademia Galleries.
Located inside a complex of buildings once independent one from the other, a church, a monastery and a ‘Scuola Grande’ (one of the important lay brotherhoods that operated with devotional purposes under the Republic of Venice), the museum is organised in a chronological order. From early Gothic – with superb examples of Paolo and Lorenzo Veneziano – to Landscape painters, like Bellotto and Carlevarijs and the elegant sculptures of Antonio Canova. The main part of the collection is focused on Venetian Renaissance. On the walls hang paintings of Giovanni Bellini, Giorgione, Tiziano, Jacopo Tintoretto, Lorenzo Lotto, Paolo Veronese, together with some of the most interesting cycles of Vittore Carpaccio.
Since 2015 a new sereis of rooms has enriched the collection by displaying recently restaured canvases of the 17th and 18th century thereby reconsidering under a new light a minor period of Venetian painting.
