Museo Civico Correr



City museum and historical Risorgimento museum. Comprehensive overview of the old Venetian Serenissima Republic. Historical look at Venetian painting from its origins to today. A museum of art and of Venetian history, located in the Procuratie Nuove: on display are prints, drawings, paintings, documents, artefacts and mementos. Part of the city’s Correr Museum, the Museum of the Risorgimento was founded for educational purposes. It preserves documents, mementos, paintings and prints related to this period of Italian history. 

From 11 July 2012, after a more than 10 year restauration project, Imperial Apartments used by the Empress Sissi are opened to the public, enriching the Museum itinerary.
Princess Sissi sojourned for 38 days in the Imperial Apartments in the Royal Palace, in occasion of her first visit in Venice in 1856, the visit recalled in the fourth episode of the famous film by Ernest Mirischka. Then, Elisabeth chose Venice to live after the death of her daughter Sofia, between October 1861 and May 1862.

The nine rooms now opened to the public, give back to light decorations by Giuseppe Borsato, ornamentations by Giovanni Rossi, golden stuccos. New tapestries have been collocated in the rooms, close to the original ones, expressly realized and donated by Rubelli - Venice. To recall the original atmosphere, precious fittings dated to the Napoleonic period and in Imperial style have been collocated in the Apartments.
