A word from the Directors
“The relaunching of the Dorsoduro Museum Mile is based on forms of collaboration between cultural institutions that are very different in nature but active in the same context and united by the common aim of satisfying the new needs and interests of the public," explains Giulio Manieri Elia, Director of the Gallerie dell'Accademia. "Continuously updating communications and promotion strategies and constantly improving customer care, together with the quality of the cultural experience, especially in these fast-changing complex times, are a priority in our cultural offering”.
"The very different art worlds that can be found on the Dorsoduro Museum Mile” – stresses Luca Massimo Barbero, Director of the Fondazione Giorgio Cini Institute of Art History – “was from the outset the main reason for its creation. Travelling along ‘the art history timeline’ in such a comprehensive way, from the Middle Ages to the liveliest contemporary art, makes this very rich itinerary, condensed in the area of Dorsoduro, an attraction unrivalled by other cities. This journey exploring art is an extraordinary way of stimulating thought while finally being able to see works ‘live’ gain”.
“Today more than ever Venice needs projects such as the Dorsoduro Museum Mile, which is the result of the synergy and cooperation among institutions that believe in the healing power of art and beauty,” comments Karole P. B. Vail, Director of the Peggy Guggenheim Collection. “At present, we once again experience art in person and are happy be part of an itinerary that takes visitors from the Great Masters to modernity".
"Relaunching such an ambitious project as the Dorsoduro Museum Mile” – adds Bruno Racine, Director and CEO of Palazzo Grassi – Punta della Dogana – “and enriching it with new opportunities for visitors, stresses the need to think collectively, and make a synergic response to the ongoing crisis. Offering the public the opportunity to retrace the history of art through the collections of public and private institutions is a top-quality cultural attraction in one of the most charming areas in the city of Venice".
