COMITÉ FRANÇAIS POUR LA SAUVEGARDE DE VENISE

For the past fifteen years the French Committee for the protection of Venice has been committed to the revival of the Royal Palace in Venice in Saint Mark’s Square. After the initial restoration project of the Correr Museum, which went from the San Geminiano arcade to the Ball Room, under the direction of the Superintendency for Architectural Heritage and Civic Museums Foundation of Venice, it has concentrated on the creation of the “Great Correr”: formerly used as administration offices of different kinds, 12 rooms have already been restored to their former neo-Classical splendour and are now part of the Correr Museum; the Apartments of the famous Empress Sissi have already been opened to the public, meeting with great success, and are soon to be followed by the Emperor’s rooms, thus returning some of its history and elegant decorative arts to Venice.

Using private funds, the French Committee will continue its support of the restoration of the Rooms in the passageways and the Throne Room where the project “Sublime Canova” conceived by Civic Museums Foundation of Venice will be set up with the support of Venice Foundation and Friends of Venice.
