  • It is accessed from the Correr Museum or from another entrance in front of the Ducal Palace, crossing the Marciana Library, you reach the archaeological museum. The exhibit much more important for us scholars is the portrait of Pompey, Roman copy of the mid-1st century A.D. (age claudia) from an original age cesariana that taste was pathetic in vogue at the time, both in paintings, sculptures. It differs, therefore, remarkably second portrait of the great (so greeted him, not without a touch of irony, his ' master ' Silla, since until then Pompey had ' distinguished ' for repression to the point that someone had to define, perhaps too severely, the big butcher) present at the NY CARLSBERG GLYPTOTEK MUSEUM in Copenhagen, always copy, but by age of Adrian of an original that was idealised taste typical of Hellenistic art, also for the presence of anastolè (combing with leaning forehead curl) to Copenhagen's most famous portrait, one that occurs more often (for instance) on the books, but the finding of Venice is also valuable if only for the fact that portraits of Pompeo there are none (unless future discoveries ...) while we have others on currency. Always in the same room (the ninth) is an idealized portrait of Antonia minor, example of ancient Roman female virtue, daughter of the Triumvir and Octavia (sister of Augustus), wife of Tiberius and Drusus, brother of the great conqueror of Retia and part of Germany, died young in av 9. Christ for a trivial fall from a horse. Their marriage produced Germanicus, Livilla, the future emperor Claudius. Two female busts of realistic address show the hairdos of the matrons of the time flavia and the end of the same period, a suggestion for those girls now, always unsatisfied with their hair, always looking for something new to please the boys ... Particularly interesting is the opposite of a sarcophagus, from Rome and showing the slaughter of the Niobidi, episode ' much sought after ' in Roman statuary and reliefs. Always appealing depictions of Aphrodite, this marina, likely fountain for the ornament hole in jug, Roman copy of original from Asia minor of age antonina insular first half of the 1st century BC. Precious numismatic collection with a silver didrachma from Tarentum dating, think, at 282-278 av. Christ, Pyrrhic war era and a bronze depicting a Punic emission cavallino, 221-202 dated av era against Hannibal. Christ. Stands out for its beauty and sweetness a female head, 2nd-century A.D. Roman copy from an original by fourth-century attica school av. Christ and only example (I think) from the collection Morosini (almost everything else is the result of testamentary donation Grimani of 1587) also notice a valuable mosaic tile, coming perhaps from Aquileia to the IV century A.D. depicting a seascape. Finally the last three exhibits that have impressed me (and I'm sure will also voi...ne!): a statue of Apollo high school 2nd-century A.D. Roman copy from the original prassitelico, that at least face the view, instead of the same statue found in the baths of Caracalla and again (maybe??) in the octagonal hall of the baths of Diocletian in Rome, which instead has abraded; the ara Grimani, base of a statue with reliefs of satyrs and maenads Dionysian Rite participants: the elegance of the reliefs and Hellenistic style, tear up production early in the Augustan age, the golden age, both in art, which in the literature, and finally a stele opistografa (written in a continuous way, written on the back) of the 2nd century BC. Christ coming from Crete and found (as I recall) to Portogruaro.

  • A lot of fine statues, coins and pictures, but little that has with the traditional archaeology and do. Worth a visit if it's bad weather and have already been to the "fixed" locations.

  • I dislike very much archaeological museums but this was included in the Museum and having visited the Correr, I also went here ... numerous statues of various periods, artifacts, jewelry, trappings, even mummified bodies of ancient Egypt 2. To turn is kinda confusing and I think it would be good to organize a guided tour more clearly so as not to get lost
