the two great exhibitions

The five hundredth anniversary of the birth of Tintoretto is being celebrated throughout Venice. Two major exhibitions, one at the Gallerie dellAccademia (Il Giovane Tintoretto)  and the other at the Palazzo Ducale (Tintoretto 1519/1594), enable visitors to learn more about the brilliant complexity of this giant of sixteenth-century Venetian painting. To this end, a guided tour through both venues has been planned: at the Gallerie dellAccademia it will be possible to discover the young Tintoretto and the artistic and cultural environment in which he learned his trade, while at the Palazzo Ducale, the exhibition in the Doge’s apartment reveals the mature Tintoretto and the different aspects of his production, including the extraordinary and personal way in which he worked.

Duration: 3 hours
