Accademia Gallery of Venice
Accademia Gallery of Venice. This museum is situated on the south side of the Canal Grande, within the Sestiere Dorsoduro, and the foot of the Accademia Bridge. At the beginning of the 18th century Venice was a flourishing artist community but it didn’t have a real Academy of Art since her painters still belonged to a guild of artisans, contrary to other cities.
In 1766 the Senate commanded the construction of an Academy of painting, sculture and civil architecture that had to be similar to those in the main italian and european cities. The Accademia Galleries host a wonderful collection of Venetian paintings dated back from the 14th to the 18th centuries. Among the artists you can find Giorgio, Bellini, Tiziano, Carpaccio, Tintoretto, Tiepolo and Veronese.
The Accademia Galleries house an outstanding collection of Venetian paintings that date back from the XIVth to the XVIIIth centuries.
Among them the masterpieces of Bellini, Giorgione, Carpaccio, Tiziano, Tintoretto, Veronese and Tiepolo.
