Galleria Giorgio Franchetti at the Ca’ d’Oro, Venice
From 23 March to 23 July 2017

 

The Galleria Giorgio Franchetti at the Ca’ d’Oro in Venice is opening the Serenissime Trame exhibition. This is the first museum presentation of the Zaleski collection, with a selection of twenty-five antique carpets, absolute masterpieces, from the near East picked out from a precious, vast collection that is probably the most complete in the world.

The exhibition in the extraordinary Venetian building is a tribute to the collecting passion of Giorgio Franchetti, founder of the Ca’ d’Oro state museum, who focused his youthful interests precisely on carpets and nurtured a marked interest in the decorative arts.

A nucleus of very rare carpets made in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries has been selected from the Zaleski collection, representing some of the most prized types, which came to Venice along the trade routes from the Orient. Comparing these with some Italian paintings dating from the mid-fifteenth century to the mid-sixteenth century, chosen from an area of cultural influence closely linked to the domains of the Serenissima, allows the extensive distribution of these luxury objects in the northern area, particularly the Lombard-Veneto and Este sphere, to be immediately noted.

The exhibition is part of the project to highlight the small but precious nucleus of Oriental carpets in the Franchetti collection and will see three of the most precious textile products in the collection permanently added to the museum’s exhibition.
