Thanks to the collaboration between the Fondazione Musei Civici di Venezia and the Google Cultural Institute, Ca’ Rezzonico is now part of Google Art Project: an online platform through which the public around the world can access high-resolution images of works of art in the collections of museums partners in the initiative, with the goal of democratizing access to culture and to promote its preservation for future generations.
For Ca’ Rezzonico are uploaded 48 high resolution images of some of the most representative works of the collection and the museum display. These masterpieces include works by Giambattista Tiepolo (La Nobiltà e la Virtù che abbattono l’ignoranza, Il Trionfo di Zefiro e Flora), frescos from Villa Zianigo by Giandomenico Tiepolo, with the suggestive Mondo Novo and scenes from the Pulcinella‘s life. At the end of the gallery two wonderful views by Canaletto, the Veduta del Rio dei Mendicanti and the Canal Grande da Ca’ Balbi verso Rialto.
Not only! For Ca’ Rezzonico is now possible to visit the splendid museum interior with the Street View virtual tour, which allows you to appreciate the beauty of the exhibition itinerary, focusing on particular aspects or works, such as the view of the Canal Grande da Ca’ Balbi verso Rialto by Canaletto, exceptionally available in Gigapixel resolution.
In fact each Gigapixel image contains around 7 billion pixels, and thus allows the viewer to appreciate the details of the stroke beyond what can be seen with the naked eye.
