The Correr Museum

The Correr Museum

The Correr Museum is located in the San Marco neighborhood (San Marco Square), near the Doge’s Palace. The museum was founded thanks to donations from the Venetian nobleman Teodoro Correr, who died in 1830. Over the years the collection grew greatly and at the end of the 19th century it was necessary to transfer the works of Palazzo Correr to the Fondaco of the Turks.

In 1922, the collection was transferred to the current headquarters, in the spaces of the Napoleonic Wing and part of the New Attorneys Office, built in the first half of the 19th century. Its construction was ordered by Napoleon, with the intention of having it as a seat for ceremonies. Inside the Correr Museum, you can find many paintings of views and plans of Venice, several sketches, reproductions of marble of the lion of San Marcos and some works of Canova. In addition, in many rooms of the palace you can find neoclassical decorations, objects related to the figure of the Duke, robes of the magistrates of the time, a collection of coins and various symbols of Venice.

There are also rooms dedicated to trade and navigation, activities with which the city of Venice had gained a prestigious role. In the museum there is also a rare work by the painter Antonio Leonelli.
