What happens inside the museum on Monday afternoon, when the Galleria is closed ?
Frutto della grande passione di Giorgio Franchetti per i marmi antichi e le armonie musicali, il mosaico dell’atrio in “opus sectile”, ispirato ai pavimenti cosmateschi e agli esempi della basilica marciana, costò al barone anni di impegno e dedizione.
“… Look at this little candle. It is me. And I flatter myself that I can to do a little light “
Giorgio Franchetti, beyond the collecting, dedicated much of his time to music.
Two people, two generations, two collections, only one name, only one place.
The project of making palace Ca’ d’Oro a museum gathering his collection, occupied the entire life of Franchetti, but for him, unfortunately or fortunately, it was impossible to see his dream realized.
