Fondazione Musei Civici di Venezia
The project ‘Scrigni veneziani’ wants to tell the story of the most valuable objects of the historical-artistic heritage preserved in our museums, with the help of about thirty, one and a half minute video clips. Short "true" stories of facts, people and objects, which still maintain civil and political values in their DNA, will thus become an opportunity for knowledge and dissemination not only of artworks and artists, but also the discovery of curious aspects and unexpected traits of social, political and economic life of the Republic of Venice. The choice of these peculiarities of Venetian life also has as its ultimate goal to attract the attention of the general public to value categories that are still very current nowadays.
The protagonists of these short videos will be the museums of the Civic Museums Foundation, each of them representing through its masterpieces, most iconic objects and most representative artworks, a piece of the long millennial history of Venice.
