This evening the highly anticipated inauguration of the exhibition hosted by Bulgari and Venetian Heritage to present the two newly restored Paolo Veronese Murano paintings Saint Jerome in the Desert and Saint Agatha Visited in Prison by Saint Peter took place during the opening week of the Venice Biennale.
The inauguration of the exhibition was hosted at the Gallerie dell’Accademia Museum, within the unique setting of the Venice Biennale, one of the most prestigious international art events. The second exhibition, “Veronese in Murano: Two Venetian Renaissance Masterpieces Restored”, will inaugurate on 24th October 2017 at the celebrated Frick Collection in New York.
The following VIPs attended the event: Nicola and Beatrice Bulgari, Peter Marino, Derek Blasberg, Camilla Alibrandi, Sofia Cacciapaglia, Fiona Scarry, Celeste Oliphant, Slater B. Bradley, Mirella Petteni Haggiag and many more.
Bulgari’s partnership with the Venetian Heritage project is one of the many patronage projects to preserve and promote Italian artistic treasures that the Maison has been involved in over the years. The Spanish Steps and the floor mosaics of the Caracalla Baths in Rome have been returned to their original splendour with Bulgari’s contribution. In the Eternal City, Bulgari has financed the new lighting of the monumental staircase featured in the Museum of Rome, Palazzo Braschi, an example of architectural magnificence at the heart of Piazza Navona. Sensitivity towards art and beauty, from which it often draws inspiration for its jewellery masterpieces, has led the Maison to enthusiastically involve itself in restoration projects promoted by Venetian Heritage.
