closed Albrecht Dürer. The Remondini collection

The show

"Albrecht Dürer. The Remondini collection" proposes, for the first time in an integral way, the graphic treasure of Albrecht Dürer (1471-1528), patrimony of the Bassano museum collections. A corpus of 214 engravings which, in terms of breadth and quality, is classified as the most important and complete in the world with the one kept at the Albertina Museum in Vienna.
The City of Bassano del Grappa has chosen this extraordinary tribute to the genius of Dürer to celebrate the reopening of Palazzo Sturm, at the end of the last restoration campaign that has fully restored the magnificent jewel of architecture and art to visits, the ideal location for the exhibition of the graphic works of Albrecht Dürer.

In fact, Palazzo Sturm hosts the Remondini Engraving Museum which preserves and presents, in an extensively suggestive way, the creations of the mythical dynasty of Bassanese printers, specialized in refined editions and popular prints that, between the 17th and 18th centuries, spread all over the world. But the Remondinis were also attentive art collectors. In their very important collections, today the patrimony of the Civic Museums, there are 8500 works of graphics among which the names of the great European masters of the Renaissance and the modern era stand out. Among them Albrecht Dürer, present in the Remondini Collections with 123 xylographs and 91 intaglio prints. Dürer made 260 engravings and 214 of them are in Bassano del Grappa.

The set-up, consisting of 56 glass and steel cases, is designed to be versatile: from engraver sheets to volumes, from plates to small sculptures, these structures have been designed to maximize the optimal conservation conditions of the works both from a microclimatic and luministic point of view. The latter, designed specifically for the protection of paper works, is equipped with a presence detector that subjects the work to light irradiation only in the presence of the visitor.

The path, shared between APML architects, Studio Multiplo and the director Chiara Casarin, accompanies the visitor from the introductory rooms on the techniques of engraving and printing on the second floor to the historical and thematic insights of the temporary exhibitions on the fourth and fifth floors. The visit ends with a video in which the moments of realization of the works and historical insights relating to the exhibition in progress are narrated.
