The artworks, better still the masterpieces, gathered by two extraordinary collectors, grandfather and nephew, will be united for the first time at the Ca’ d’Oro, the palace that the first of the two, baron Giorgio Franchetti, chose to custody his treasures, so that they would be available to the public. Featured alongside his grandfather’s collection of ancient art the exhibition will display his nephew Giorgio jr.’s collection, no less rare and documenting the new trends and languages of Italian art after the War.
From May 30th to November 24th all this will be displayed in the exhibition “da Giorgio Franchetti a Giorgio Franchetti. Collezionismi alla Ca’ d’Oro”. The exhibition, which has been granted patronage by the President of the Italian Republic, was proposed by the Soprintendenza per il Polo Museale Veneziano, Soprintendente Giovanna Damiani, within the frame of the Italian Ministry of Culture’s institutional initiatives, promoted by the Department for Architecture and Contemporary Art of the PaBAAC General Direction, in occasion of the 55th International Art Exhibition of the Venice Biennale 2013, in collaboration with MondoMostre, and curated by Claudia Cremonini and Flavio Fergonzi.
