Until September 10th, the Ca’ d’Oro Museum in Venice hosts the exhibition “Serenissime Trame. Carpets from the Zaleski collection and Renaissance paintings”, produced by Polo museale del Veneto and Fondazione Tassara of Brescia.
Carpets, painting and art collecting are the three themes proposed by the exhibition, which focuses on Venice, bridge to the Orient and cradle of Renaissance painting.
Through sacred and profane iconography, the works of European painters of the Renaissance attest the diffusion of luxurious artifacts. The extraordinary late Gothic Venetian palace is the special set of the exhibition, that pays tribute to the collector's passion of Giorgio Franchetti, founder of the Ca' d'Oro Museum, who had concentrated his youthful interests precisely on the carpets and was passionate about decorative arts.
