Staples of Venetian Art. Making history at Fondazione Querini Stampalia
Written by Daniela Paties Montagner   

collezione_sala_tiepolo_foto_alessandra_chemollo.jpgLast November 21, the exhibition of the treasures of the Cassa di Risparmio di Venezia collection opened to the public at Fondazione Querini Stampalia. Curator Giovanna Nepi Scirè arranged the collection in the eight halls on the third floor at Querini Stampalia, a beautiful house-museum that architect Michele De Lucchi adapted to welcome the precious art endowment.

 

There were no interventions on the hardwood floors, which are the building’s original, nor to the ceilings and other parts of the building that display how Venetian buildings were made at that time. The collection includes art by Tintoretto, Canaletto, Tiepolo, Caffi, Ciardi, and Martini.

 

The first piece is a female torso in black marble by Alberto Viani, which leads us to the several halls, each dedicated to one artist. The visit ends in the multi-media room.

 

On the first floor, the library room keeps an endowment of 454 manuscripts, seals, and statutes, 3000 books, Venetian prints from the 15th to 18th centuries, and a coin and note collection.

 

At the same time, again on the first floor, temporary exhibition La biblioteca storica di Intesa Sanpaolo alla Querini Stampalia displays a collection of rare and precious ancient books.
