THE CORRER MUSEUM
The itinerary begins with the Neo-classical Rooms of the Royal Palace, which constitute a splendid background for the collection of statues and bas-reliefs by Antonio Canova; then the Historic Collections, which reevoke, through suggestions and significant events, the great themes of the institutional history of Venice in the centuries of its greatness and political independence; commerce, navigation, political and military strength. A collection of maps and Mews illustrates the urbanistic evolution of the City. Following is the collection of Small Renaissance Bronzes from the Paduan and Venetian schools of the XVth and XVIth centuries (works by Riccio, N. Roccatagliata, G. Campagna, T. Aspetti) and the section dedicated to Arts and Crafts and to Games, both popular and noble, at the time of the Serenissima.
The Picture Gallery, one of the richest and most suggestive of Venetian painting from its origins to the early XVIth century, with masterpieces by Antonello da Messina, Carpaccio, the Bellini family, Cosmè Tura, Lotto. The arrangement of the exposition is by Carlo Scarpa (I960); the Ivory Collection, exquisite realisations from late-Roman, Gothic and Renaissance times; the collection of Venetian and Center-Italian Majolica of the XVth and XVIth centuries, including the famous Correr dinner-service; the Museum of the Risorgimento, with paintings, objects and documents pertinent to the events in the City from the end of the Republic through the French and Austrian domination, through the annexation to the Kingdom of Italy. Contiguous to the exhibition rooms is the Museum Library, specialised in Art and History, and the Cabinet of Prints and Drawings with graphic material of the highest level.
