The Accademia Galleries

The Gallerie dell'Accademia in Venice is the most important collection of Venetian painting in the world. The architectural complex that today houses the Great Galleries of the Academy is made up of several historic buildings: the church of Santa Maria della Carità , its convent - the sixteenth-century part of which is due to the genius of Palladio - and the spaces of the Scuola Grande of the same name.

In the Gallerie dell'Accademia housed in 24 rooms, an exhibition itinerary is organized that ranges from fourteenth-century painting to that of the eighteenth century , which includes some absolute masterpieces such as The Tempest by Giorgione, La Pietà by Titian, The cycle of the stories of Sant 'Orsola di Carpaccio and Il Convito in the house of Levi del Vebronese .

Currently the museum houses two restoration sites on the ground floor and first floor, aimed at improving the spaces and renewing the exhibition itinerary, therefore part of the collection cannot be visited. For more information, visit the website.

The Cabinet of Drawings of the Gallerie dell'Accademia possesses, among others, some of the most important sheets of Western culture, including Leonardo 's Vitruvian Man , whose vision, for conservative reasons, is limited to special occasions.

The Gallerie dell'Accademia in Venice organizes temporary exhibitions dedicated mainly to Venetian painting, with openings to contemporary art .
