Collections

Rome and Central southern Italy

With its ruins, its antique market, and its collections, Rome was a significant supply source of archaeological material and inspiration for various collections of the lagoon city. Expression of the relations between Venetian elites and the Eternal City, these collections were an eloquent symbol of social prestige. Among Venetian prelates and diplomats that sojourned at Palazzo Venezia in Rome from the early 15th century to 1797, there were some personalities close to the Archeological Museum’s history such as the cardinal Domenico Grimani and the ambassador Girolamo Zulian, author of the last bequest in favour of the Public Statuary before the fall of Serenissima Republic.
