Going up the sumptuous staircase you first enter the Napoleonic Wing of the Correr Museum, you enter the elegant antechamber, which houses the reception area of the museum and which a recent restoration has brought back to all the splendor of the neoclassical ornaments. From here you pass to the Napoleonic gallery or loggia With the imposing Ballroom and the subsequent Throne Room and Dining Room, it was the main nucleus of the premises
After the Napoleonic Wing, you pass to the Procuratie Nuove, designed by the architect Vincenzo Scamozzi (1552-1616), where the major magistrates of the Serenissima resided. Here, in the large rooms different aspects of Venetian Civilization are illustrated, from daily life to that of institutions, from maritime enterprises to city festivals
For the decoration and furnishings, the Correr Museum is a very significant testimony of neoclassical art, attentive to refinementof French taste but faithful to the traditions of Italian art, renewed and revived by the archaeological discoveries of the second half of the eighteenth century, in particular by the excavations of Pompeii, an ideal setting for the display of the rich Canova collection.
