While the websites announce it opened, when we arrive in front of the Museum, a note on the door announced only Italian that the Museum is closed for renovations. No date mentioned reopening. And icing on the cake: a poster at the door announces a current exhibition. Must be done!

Wonderful collection of works by renowned artists such as Tintoretto, Palma il Giovane, Luca Giordano, the wooden table belliniano Bissolo representing the Holy family, "the lion marching in moleca" high relief in stone of Aurisina of thirteen hundred retrieved in rio di s. Marcuola and many others, that adorned churches today closed or intended for other uses. Paintings that were at risk of being lost or whose original location had become insecure found in this Museum organized a gallery that allows viewing. Secondary not the collection of wooden statues sacred and precious collection of virgins clad sacred craftsmanship that collects 200 also creations of twelve hundred. The former Benedictine monastery of St. Apollonia, erected in twelve hundred, ceased his religious use under Austrian rule and became offices. In relatively recent times under the patriaracato of Roncalli, future Pope John XXIII was regained by the curia, today's American Museum. The cloister remains a charming place of meditation and peace for our walks, available with separate entrance from the top Museum at a cost of one euro; presenting Romanesque closest to the convents of mainland, rather unusual in Venetian convents, a portico with arches supported by columns on both sides of minors, stubby twin balusters on the sides. The walls have found accommodation accessible "Lapidary marciano" the collection of Roman and Byzantine decorative fragments in the past, archaic ornament in the basilica of San Marco, in the center of the cloister you can also admire the well curb the cube-shaped Two hundred.
Viva Vivaldi! Absolutely spectacular. Make sure you don't go into the third room until the beginning of the piece. But wow. Absolutely goosebump-ingly wonderful!
