Culminating in its opening on 17t May, the Grande Bailo Museum will have doubled exhibition space, new areas for temporary exhibitions, services and depots. Transforming the 19th-century Municipal Museum into the new Bailo has called for an investment of over €8 million, and the months leading up to its opening will be marked by a succession of important exhibitions. 

Important paintings on loan

The first event is the arrival at the Santa Caterina Civic Museum of a distinguished painting from the Kunsthistorisches Museum Vienna: the famous portrait of Doge Erizzo, a masterpiece by Bernardo Strozzi (19 November 2021 - 13 February 2022). Meanwhile, in the rooms of the Bailo and in the Pinacoteca Alberto Martini in Oderzo, from 18 December to 27 March 2022, you can admire the exhibition Treviso Journey Dantesco a more than dutiful homage to the poet by a city that welcomed many Florentine exiles, including Dante’s son Pietro.

From Canova to Treviso’s Paris Bordon and Gino Rossi

From 25 March The 19th-centry revealed: from Canova to historic romanticism” exhibition will feature important works by Canova and the best of the 19th-century art collection from the Civic Museums including works that  have rarely been exhibited before. Meanwhile, at the Santa Caterina, from 27 February to 26 June, you can admire the grandiose exhibition of the works of Treviso-born Paris Bordon with paintings on loan from the most important European museums. And an original Homage to Gino Rossi will present for the first time, alongside his paintings many never-before-exhibited drawings by this other Treviso artist.

A worthwhile investment with public and private support

The inauguration of the Grande Bailo on 17 May will be a highlight for a city that has invested in art and culture with the backing of the city council, the state and private donors. All this in a city of fewer than 85,000 inhabitants, and an investment in culture as a lifeline both for the social growth of the area and a major tourist attraction.
