English:

The ancient cloister of St Apollonia, just behind Saint Mark’s square, is the home of a fascinating Salvador Dalí exhibition: The Dalí Universe.

The Dalí Universe is an exploration into the work one of the Twentieth Century’s most famous artists : Salvador Dalí (1904 – 1989). At The Dalí Universe visitors are made to feel as if they are entering the mind of the great genius Catalan artist.

Salvador Dalí worked in many mediums. However, his mastery of the sculptural form is an area of his work which deserves closer attention.

The Dalí Universe exhibition highlights include large bronze sculptures of the iconic melted clocks with which Salvador Dali is synonymous e.g. The Profile of Time and The Persistence of Memory. Alongside these breathtaking pieces are over 50 wonderful and otherworldly surrealist sculptures by Salvador Dalí to be seen.

Complementing the sculptural pieces is a fascinating selection of illustrations, etchings and engravings which serve as testimony to the creative force of the artist and his skills as a draughtsman. In total there are over 200 fascinating artworks to be seen.

  • I do not recommend to visit this place purposefully.

  • Dali has been "pigeonholed" by his ubiquitous surrealist painting, so, few people are aware of his brilliant craftsmanship in jewelry, sculpture, lithographs and his stunning books. What an eye-opener...  more »
  • Not the best place to visit in Venice, there is nothing particularly interesting, it is niceto walk around the city, especially in the area where there are practically tourists, so to speak get lost in this charming city.
