Correr Museum celebrates doge and captain-general da mar Francesco Morosini, 400 years after his birth


Venice's Museo Correr is hosting an exhibition honoring the doge and captain-general da mar Francesco Morosini on the 400th anniversary of his birth until January 2020.

The exhibition Francesco Morosini: last hero of the Serenissima between history and myth opened at the Museo Correr in Venice and will be open until January 6, 2020, on the occasion of the 400th anniversary of the birth of the “Peloponnesian.”

Doge and captain-general da mar Francesco Morosini was an undisputed hero and protagonist of the military events of the Serenissima in its twilight, a controversial and fascinating character, and a great collector.
The entire historical heritage of the Morosinis is kept right at the Correr Museum, as it was acquired in 1895 by the last heir of the palace.

The exhibition aims to evoke the illusion of the return to glory of the Serenissima military and maritime power in the Mediterranean. Memorabilia, works of art, personal objects, books, portulans, globes, classical Greek art artifacts, military documents, naval and fortress models, hooks taken from the Ottomans, trophies, coins, and medals will be displayed to present the figure and historical dimension of Francesco Morosini.

The scientific direction of the exhibition is by Gabriella Belli and is supported by the Venice Foundation.
