Ca’ Rezzonico – Museum of 18th Century Venice reopens its doors after major renovation, restoration and refurbishment works.
For the first time, more than twenty years after the opening of the Museum, the need has arisen to renovate the palace, yet without affecting its magical atmosphere as a period museum.
To further improve the quality of the services offered and guarantee the museum’s greater functionality, the ground floor facilities and reception areas will be refurbished after being severely damaged during the high water incident of November 2019.
With this in mind, new state-of-the-art educational areas are planned, as well as the renewal of the toilets, ticket office and bookshop.
Ground floor renovation have been carried out thanks to a major donation of 450,000 euro from Coop Italia, provided through the ArtBonus system.
The Municipal Administration and the Fondazione Musei Civici di Venezia have decided to add to this generous funding by also intervening on the upper floors. Taking advantage of the period of closure, a new lighting system will be installed and large-scale maintenance undertaken on the Venetian-style terrazzo floor and some parts of the garden. All halogen lighting fixtures will be replaced with new LED lights on the first and third floor exhibition rooms, which will also enhance the enjoyment the works on display.
When the museum reopens, works from the collection that have been in storage for decades will return to public display, along with works recently donated by private individuals. Lastly, work continues on the restoration of the collections in the Foundation’s Cabinet of Drawings and Prints, housed since 2021 on the mezzanine floor of Ca’ Rezzonico.
