The stores at Venice’s Civic Museums have been given a brand-new look under the management of the international Museum Musei consortium, providing extensive spaces where visitors will find a host of ideas and quality products.
Much more than just bookshops, the stores are the perfect way to round off a visit to the museums. With an outstanding selection of books in different languages, guides, catalogues for temporary exhibitions, design objects, reproduction jewellery inspired by the pieces on display, prints, local crafts and jewellery by renowned designers, they provide visitors from around the world with fascinating products and mementoes of their visit.
The stores at Palazzo Ducale, Museo Correr, Ca’ Rezzonico, Ca’ Pesaro, Palazzo Fortuny, Palazzo Mocenigo, Museo di Storia Naturale, Museo del Vetro and Museo del Merletto reflect the unique nature and features of the individual museums, and their constantly expanding ranges set each one apart.
Plenty of space is given over to Venetian craftsmanship, with locally-sourced materials and one-off creations by local artisans and young artists.
With a new layout, the bookshop of Palazzo Mocenigo reopens in 2013, after the restyling of the museum. A bookshop by Museum Musei and a museum shop by Mavive, with the exclusive line The Merchant of Venice, are waiting for you.
