Venice and Saint Petersburg. Artists, Princes and Merchants, curated by Irina Artemieva and Alberto Craievich, will open at Candiani Cultural Centre in Mestre on December 14 to document the birth of this interesting chapter in the history of art collections.

 

The exhibition investigates the relations between Venetian artists and Russian patrons over the course of the 18th century in an original fashion, thanks to the cooperation between the City of Venice and the State Hermitage Museum.
