5) WHY VISIT PALAZZO MOCENIGO MUSEUM?
Palazzo Mocenigo in Venice is named after one of the most important families of the ancient Venetian nobility, the Mocenigo, who lived there from the early 1600s to the mid-1900s.
After careful renovations, since 1985 it has been home to the Study Center of the History of Textiles and Costume in Venice and a vast library that boasts over 13,000 mannequins dating from the 18th to the 20th century. The 2013 expansion doubled the exhibition area by integrating the works on display with others from the vast coleections of the Civic Museums.
The exhibition of the museum of Palazzo Mocenigo aims to bring back to life the everyday life of the nobility of Venice between the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, with particular attention to fashion: the clothes and accessories on display are made of textured fabrics, embellished with embroidery and lace, and well document the skill of the craftsmen (weavers, tailors, lace makers, embroiderers, etc.) who contributed to the creation of the refined and luxurious elegance for which the Venetians were famous.
A section of the new rooms hosts a new collection unique in Europe: the museum of perfume. Sensorial experiences and multimedia instruments will accompany you to discover ancient soaps and fragrances invented in Venice centuries ago. You will also be able to experience the so-called olfactory families, the classification of perfumes based on the elements that compose them, from which the different perfumes originate!
In addition, in all the rooms of Palazzo Mocenigo you can admire paintings, mostly dated to the 18th century, which will give you a very vivid idea of what a Venetian noble palace looked like at the time of the Serenissima.
