The Dorsoduro Museum Mile is born: an art itinerary, both topographical and historical, through the sestiere of Dorsoduro, connecting four Venetian cultural institutions: the Gallerie dell’Accademia, Palazzo Cini, the Peggy Guggenheim Collection and the Punta della Dogana. The project springs from a joint agreement for combined communications and promotion to raise awareness of the cultural offering of the Dorsoduro peninsula of Venice’s Grand Canal.
The first project of the ‘Dorsoduro Museum Mile’ is a freely distributed city map, printed with the support of Assicurazioni Generali, that illustrates the museum mile’s route through Dorosduro.
The itinerary walks visitors for a little over a mile through the Dorsoduro district, between the Grand Canal and the Giudecca Canal, offering a millennium of art history: from the Venetian Middle Ages, to masterpieces of Renaissance painting in the Accademia galleries, to major figures of 21st century art in the Punta della Dogana, and to the house-museums of Vittorio Cini and Peggy Guggenheim, which house the ancient and modern collections of these great patrons as well as temporary exhibitions.
‘Dorsoduro Museum Mile’ offers a variety of benefits and discounts, signifying an important collaboration that will continue in the future.
Upon presentation of the ‘Dorsoduro Museum Mile’ map, Palazzo Cini applies a reduction from €10 to €8 of its admission price.
