Dom Pérignon is partnering the Fondazione dei Musei Civici di Venezia to renovate two exhibition rooms in the magnificent Ca’ Pesaro palace in Venice, home to the International Gallery of Modern Art.
A chef d’œuvre of Venetian Baroque architecture, Ca’ Pesaro was built in the second half of the 17th century for the Pesaro family. Today, some 400 years later, Dom Pérignon is joining this Venetian icon, which is managed by the Fondazione Musei Civici di Venezia, to let “the power of creation” resonate once again. The two rooms, which face the Grand Canal, are currently used for storage. After renovation they will be returned to their initial vocation, hosting exhibitions that feature young artists.
Work is expected to be completed by mid-October 2014. The reopening will be celebrated with an art and photo exhibition retracing the key stages in the renaissance of these sumptuous spaces.
