The Academy of Fine Arts was founded in 1750 and got an art gallery in 1807, which was to carry out two tasks: visual aids for art students and storing the art treasures that had been scattered after the fall of the Venetian Republic after the secularization of many churches and monasteries under Napoleon. In 1817 the Academy decided to settle in the building of the Scuola della Carita where it resides until today.
The Academy offers a comprehensive overview of Venetian painting with works by Paolo Veneziano, Bellini, Carpaccio, Giorgione, Tizian, Tintoretto, Veronese, Bassano and Lorenzo Lotto, among others. The 17th and 18th century is presented with works by Tiepolo, Longhi, Guardi, Carriera and Canaletto.
Painting lovers will be deeply impressed by the variety and beauty of the works.
