From 22 June to 08 December 2019

An exhibition about Giovanni Querini and Venice: a partnership that has lasted for over 150 years.

The new world in which Giovanni lived for seventy years (1799-1869) coincides with the period of the decline of Venice, the fall of the Venetian Republic and the French and Austrian dominations. 

Interested in promoting the economic, moral and cultural growth of the city, he is strongly aware of the changes. His will, establishing in1869 the Fondazione Querini Stampalia, is a political and cultural manifesto of great value, testimony to these transformations.

150 years have passed. Over this period the Fondazione has tried to remain faithful to those wills, despite the changing times and the mutations of the social, cultural and political reality. 

Passing through the XX century with its tragedies, adapting to the extraordinary technological advances, the Fondazione has always been a critical and sensible protagonist of the intellectual and cultural history of our country.
