closed Giambattista Piranesi

Curated by: Chiara Casarin

The show

After Albrecht Dürer, the restored rooms of Palazzo Sturm welcome another giant of engraving: Giambattista Piranesi (1720-1778).

The exhibition ​Giambattista Piranesi. Architetto senza tempo — curated by Chiara Casarin and Pierluigi Panza ​— presents, for the first time in the history of the city museums, his graphic masterpieces from Bassano collections. A corpus that includes 19 loose engravings and many others enclosed in 11 volumes, to which are added for the occasion the 16 precious charts of the ​Carceri d’Invenzione from the collections of the Giorgio Cini Foundation in Venice. The graphic heritage of the artist is exhibited on the fourth and fifth floors of Palazzo Sturm, inside the steel and glass cases designed by the APML architetti studio, structures designed to preserve the works as much as possible from both a microclimatic and lighting point of view.
