Gallerie dell’Accademia

The biggest and most significant of the venetian art collections consists of paintings from XIVth to XVIIIth century, exhibited in three buildings formerly used for religious purposes. Covering this large span of time, the Accademia collection gives a complete view over the venetian school of painting, from middle-age “primitives” like Paolo Veneziano and Michele Giambono, through the Renaissance time represented by Giovanni Bellini, Andrea Mantegna, Giorgione with his famous “Tempest”, Veronese and Jacopo Tintoretto, to Baroque and Rococo age, with the sometimes ironic representation of the venetian society painted by Longhi and the landscapes of Zuccarelli and Marco Ricci.
