The hall

Sala III - Venezia e il suo territorio: il Cinquecento

In this location, paintings from Venice, one of the major centers of the Italian Renaissance, where some of the greatest Italian artists of all time lived, are gathered. Capital of a thriving and powerful Republic, ruled by the Doges, Venice was the only city to express an alternative pictorial proposal to the Umbrian-Tuscan Renaissance style.
