La Modella (The Model)

Painter Eugenio Da Venezia (Venice,1900-1992) is known as one of the protagonists of twentieth-century Venetian art Between the Wars.

In 1990, the painter donated his art collection to the Querini Foundation along with a bequest earmarked for the initiation of a project aimed at rediscovering the Venetian figurative painters of his time, in particular: Carlo Dalla Zorza, Fioravante Seibezzi, Marco Novati, Aldo Bergamini, Mario Varagnolo, Juti Ravenna, Neno Mori and Luigi Scarpa Croce. Together they formed “The Carminati Palace Group,” proposing Post-Impressionist paintings en plein air, in direct contact with nature, following the example of Ca' Pesaro's first exhibitors.

Eugenio Da Venezia's collection is comprised of 25 paintings of his own work, plus another five by Novati, Mainella, and Bergamini. This collection was subsequently enriched by donations from his heirs and generous gifts from other collectors of paintings and drawings by Marco Novati, Juti Ravenna, Neno Mori, Mario Varagnolo, Carlo Dalla Zorza, Armando Tonello, Eugenio Da Venezia, Pieretto Bianco and Gigi De Giudici. 

The "Eugenio Da Venezia Donation" promotes a series of study and research activities. Beyond the exhibition of the artist's collection, the annual event, called Study Day, holds various conferences and publishes editions of “Donation Notebooks from Venice” byGiuseppina Dal Canton, exploring the period of Venetian Art Between the Wars. Moreover, owing to the collaboration of the Municipality of Rovereto and the University of Padua, exhibitions and monographic catalogues have been mounted on the works of Gigi De Giudici (2000), Neno Mori (2001), Neno Mori (2002), aside from those at the Querini Stampalia Palace.
