Fortuny Museum
Ca’ Pesaro – International Gallery of Modern Art


For the European Night of Museums 2022, the Fondazione Musei Civici di Venezia is offering visitors the chance to discover Fortuny Museum and Ca’ Pesaro – International Gallery of Modern Art, at the symbolic price of 1 euro.

In addition to the collection of Ca’ Pesaro, it will be possible to visit the temporary exhibitions included in the MUVE Contemporaneo 2022 programme: Afro 1950-1970 Dall’Italia all’America e ritorno/ From Italy to America and Back, rediscovering one of the leading exponents of Italian painting in the second half of the 20th century;  Raqib Shaw. Palazzo della Memoria, featuring works by the artist Raqib Shaw, who comes from the Indian region of Kashmir but lives in London, in a show curated by Norman Rosenthal; Bice Lazzari. Between space and dimension, a small but precious recognition of Bice Lazzari’s work, during the transition from the Informel to Abstract minimalism between late 1960s and the end of the 1970s.

The Museo Fortuny, reopened as a permanent exhibition venue. Two years after the ‘Acqua Granda’ flooding seriously damaged the Palazzo Pesaro degli Orfei, Mariano Fortuny’s house museum is set to reopen its doors to the public, following essential conservation work on the ground floor, and the refurbishment of the upper floors. These modifications set in train a historically grounded reorganization of the museum spaces, with the restoration of the rooms devoted to the memory of the brilliant and highly talented Mariano Fortuny.

The two museums will extend the opening until 22.00, from 18.00 admission will be at the symbolic price of 1 euro, last entrance to the museums is at 21.30
