Venice 1600

The Serenissima Republic has been marked by countless moments of crisis and rifts, but also by as many phases of regeneration and renewal. The history of Venice, in other words, is marked by multiple births and rebirths, fine examples of how the city has always been able to face the challenges posed by the changing times.

The exhibition VENETIA 1600. Nascite e rinascite (Births and Rebirths) at Doge’s Palace proposes a new interpretation of the history of the Serenissima, which identifies in the concept of birth and rebirth an innovative interpretative model of its past, to re-imagine a possible and optimistic future.

To illustrate the most outstanding moments of the history and identity of Venice, the exhibition will display works by some of the greatest artists, architects and men of letters who worked in the lagoon over almost a millennium. The exhibition will include important paintings by Carpaccio, Titian, Tiepolo, Canaletto, Guardi and many others, as well as a selection of miniatures, drawings, fabrics, sculptures, ceramics, architectural models, glass objects and objects of daily use.

Particular attention will be given to some of the most representative monuments in the city, such as the church of San Giacomo di Rialto, St. Mark’s Basilica, the Rialto Bridge, the Fondaco dei Tedeschi, the Doge’s Palace, the churches of the Redentore and Santa Maria della Salute, the Gran Teatro La Fenice Opera House and the Bell Tower of St. Mark’s Square, up to and including the major museums and cultural institutions of contemporary Venice.

In addition to the great masterpieces from Italian museums and private collections, the exhibition aims to enhance the rich historical, artistic and cultural heritage of Venetian museums, libraries and archives, first of all that of the collections of the Musei Civici di Venezia.
