Art collection for all tastes
The walls of this Palace carry the signs of the historical events that saw it first used as a papal residence, then as an Embassy of the Republic of Venice (from which it is named) and finally become the property of the Austrians. In 1916, however, there was created the National Museum we visit today that contains a heterogeneous collection divided by typology: paintings and sculptures, porcelain and crockery, majolica, bronzes, furniture, weapons, ivory, silver and enamels.
The path begins with the Venetian painting, with masterpieces by Paolo Veneziano, Pisanello and above all the Double Portrait by Giorgione, moving to the art of Emilia Romagna where stands the Pietà by Lelio Orsi, until the art of Central Italy with two halls dedicated to Tuscan painting.
Wonderful canvas paintings where you can enjoy absolute masterpieces like Donato Creti's Nymph Dance, Carlo Maratta's Cleopatra, Guercino's St. Peter crying, and Portrait of Virginio Orsini's sons by Tiberio Titi. Then you will pass by the majestic Altoviti Hall with frescoes by Vasari with mythological subject, up to the rooms dedicated to all other forms of art such as wooden sculptures or marble sculptures, with authors such as Mino da Fiesole, Nicola Pisano and the famous Gian Lorenzo Bernini.
Silverware, crockery, majolica and more, up to the Odescalchi collection with many types of weapons and armor, that tell about the history and evolution of the various types from the Middle Ages to the 17th century.
There is really something for everyone!
