Exhibitions inside the Basilica Palladiana: the new art exhibition "La fabbrica del Rinascimento" will open to the public in December 2021

 289812 mostra rinascimentoThe “Grandi Mostre” Project (Great Exhibitions) hosted inside the Basilica Palladiana makes a grand comeback: starting from December 2021 until April 2022, the new art exhibition “La Fabbrica del Rinascimento” will be set up inside our beloved monument and symbol of Vicenza. It is the second great exhibition after “Ritratto di donna. Il sogno degli anni Venti e lo sguardo di Ubaldo Oppi”, which was suspended in February 2020 due to the pandemic.


The Municipality of Vicenza, the “Fondazione Teatro Comunale” and the Centro internazionale di studi di architettura “Andrea Palladio” will renew their cooperation in promoting the Basilica Palladiana through a cycle of art exhibitions.
The exhibition “La fabbrica del Rinascimento” will describe the golden century of Vicenza, that is, the 16th Century.


During the Renaissance, Vicenza was at the centre of one of the most dynamic and commercial areas of Europe, all thanks to artists like Andrea Palladio, Paolo Veronese and Alessandro Vittoria. Moreover, the city became one of the most vital centre of European art and culture, manufacturing some of the finest works of art you can now see showcased in international museums.


There will be several art works borrowed from famous European museums: from the Gallerie degli Uffizi to the Museo del Prado, the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Wien and the Louvre, to renowned British Museums.

Vicenza itself hosts fine masterpieces, some of which are not very much known or not yet accessible to the public. The stunning ceilings inside Palazzo Thiene by Alessandro Vittoria; the most beautiful “Cena” by Paolo Veronese inside the Sanctuary of Monte Berico, the “Adoration of the three kings” and Cappella Valmarana inside the Church of Santa Corona… The Olympic Theatre itself is certainly worth a visit, as well as many other palazzos of the city centre.


The exhibition on the Renaissance will be officially presented at the beginning of September.

Tiepolo 250: combined ticket to Tiepolo's works

 

In celebration of the 250th anniversary of the death of Giambattista Tiepolo, one of the major Italian painters of the 18th century, a new cultural tour has been developed to promote the places where he has worked during his career.

Since Tiepolo had been extremely productive in our territory, the tour offers five steps: It starts inside Palazzo Chiericati and Palazzo Barbaran Da Porto, both found in the historic centre of Vicenza, then Villa Valmarana ai Nani, up the hill of San Bastiano; Villa Zileri Motterle in the outskirts of the city and the majestic Villa Cordellina Lombardi at the foot of the Berici Hills.

*3 works inside Palazzo Chiericati,

*7 frescoes inside Palazzo Barbaran Da Porto,

*7 entirely frescoed rooms inside Villa Valmarana ai Nani,

*12 frescoes inside the central body of Villa Zileri Motterle,

*An entirely frescoed hall inside Villa Cordellina Lombardi.

 

The opening hours can be found on the official website www.tiepolo250.com and of the websites and social media of every villa/building involved.

 

Combined ticket

It grants access to 5 sites, hosting Tiepolo’s works.

It is valid from 5th June 2020 until 31st December 2021, with the possibility for visitors to visit the sights on different days within a year.

It is sold at the ticket offices of the three villas and at the Tourist Information Office IAT in Piazza Matteotti, thanks to the collaboration of the local Consortium for Tourism Vicenza è.

The ticket costs 19 €, the reduced ticket costs 15 € for children (12 – 24 years old) and groups (+15 pax) and 11 € for students. The family ticket costs 52 € and will include 2 adults and 2 reduced tickets. Children up to 11 years old can enter for free and so can people with disabilities, tour guides and journalists.

 banner2020

The logo 

The logo pays homage to Tiepolo’s style, which often paints suspended and winged figures, and to the classic Palladian architecture. The stylised cherub that holds a laurel wreath (underlining the recurrence of the anniversary) represents the lightness of Tiepolo’s frescoes, hovering on the steps that lead to the entrance of a Venetian villa. The neutral colour evokes the decorations made of stone or stucco.
