Important new exhibitions coming to the Doge’s Palace

Today’s Corriere del Veneto presented a preview of the Fondazione Musei Civici programme in a long article on the culture page by Veronica Tuzii, announcing a good twenty-seven exhibition projects to be held in its eleven museums up to the end of the year. It is a broad and interesting offer that, as the director of the Fondazione, Gabriela Belli, said to the journalist, intends intercepting ‘the spirit of the time, from the ancient to the contemporary’. The St Mark’s area in particular will host the exhibition entitled ‘John Ruskin. Le pietre di Venezia’, at the Doge’s Palace in St Mark’s Square from 10 March to 10 June, recalling the poet and painter who contributed so much to creating the romantic myth of Venice. The Doge’s Palace will then host a big exhibition on ‘Jacopo Tintoretto, pittore veneziano (1519-1594)’ from 7 September to 6 January 2019, a tribute to the last Renaissance artistic genius. Gabriela Belli also pointed out that restoration works have been started in the contemporary exhibition area on the second floor of the Museo Correr, which will allow the creation of a new route through the museum.
