5) WHY VISIT THE NATIONAL ARCHEOLOGICAL MUSEUM OF VENICE?
Founded in 1523, following a donation by Cardinal Domenico Grimani to the Republic of Venice, the National Archaeological Museum in Venice is a state museum, included in the circuit of the Special Superintendence for the historical, artistic and ethno-anthropological heritage and for the Museums of the City of Venice and the municipalities of the lagoon areas.
It houses important original finds, mainly from the Greek-Roman age, plus a portion of the archaeological collection of the Correr Museum with finds from the Neolithic and Bronze Age, Egyptian and Assyrian-Babylonian antiquities, Greek, Etruscan and Roman artworks.
The exhibition consists of 20 rooms. Of particular note is the Ara Grimani, an original of Hellenistic art perhaps coming from Rome; the group of Venetian Galatians, part of the collection that Domenico Grimani had assembled with works coming largely from a piece of land owned by him in Rome; and the 'Samagher Capsella', an ivory and silver reliquary decorated with Christian subjects, datable to the 5th century A.D.
