PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The design and initial building work on the Napoleonic Wing dates from the years when Venice was part of that Kingdom of Italy (1806-1814) of which Napoleon was sovereign and his stepson, Eugene de Beauharnais, was Viceroy.

The Museum is laid out in various sections that offer a fascinating insight into the Art and History of Venice. The first section occupies the Napoleonic Wing itself, a nineteenth-century palace for kings and emperors; here the sumptuous Neo-classical Rooms house a noteworthy collection of works by the greatest sculptor of the age, Antonio Canova (1757-1822).

Then, one passes into the Procuratie Nuove, which were designed by the architect Vincenzo Scamozzi (1552-1616) and once housed some of the most important civic authorities within the Republic of Venice. The spacious rooms now contain collections that document various aspects of Venetian History – from daily life to public institutions, from naval achievements to local festivities.
