Venice, July 27, 2021 – Whether at the seaside, in the mountains, or in the many Italian cities of art that enrich the country’s artistic heritage, for many this will be a summer of discovery or rediscovery of Italian beauty and masterpieces. So why not make a stop in Venice, the cradle of medieval, Renaissance, modern and contemporary treasures? Among churches and the large charitable guilds of the Scuole Grandi, theaters, historic buildings, calli and campielli, the Peggy Guggenheim Collection is a must-see destination. The museum remains open in August every day, except Tuesdays, from 10 am to 6 pm. On the weekend or even during the week, spend a few hours immersed in the peace of the sculpture garden and among the works of the great masters who wrote the history of twentieth-century art: Umberto Boccioni, Alexander Calder, Salvador Dalí, Marcel Duchamp, Max Ernst, Leonor Fini, Alberto Giacometti, René Magritte, Pablo Picasso, Jackson Pollock, and Gino Severini, just to name a few. Would you like to learn more about the masterpieces in the collection of Peggy Guggenheim or her life and the history of her legendary palazzo? Try our new and innovative audio guide that is accessible from visitors’ personal smartphones: Easyguides are available at the ticket entrance of the museum, offering a completely safe experience, compliant with COVID-19 containment regulations.
Following recent government decisions, as of August 6, 2021, visitors must present an EU Covid Certificate (Green Pass) to access the museum. An EU Covid Certificate (Green Pass) is proof that a person has either been vaccinated against Covid-19, or received the first dose of a vaccine requiring two, or recovered from Covid-19, or received a negative PCR or rapid antigen test result in the previous 48 hours. Visitors must present a valid ID together with the certificate.
After visiting the Peggy Guggenheim Collection, we suggest remaining in the Dorsoduro district and enjoying the Dorsoduro Museum Mile, which brings together four major cultural institutions in an extraordinary artistic journey through the Dorsoduro district: Gallerie dell’Accademia, Galleria di Palazzo Cini, Peggy Guggenheim Collection, and Palazzo Grassi-Punta della Dogana. Visitors and members of the participating institutions enjoy special discounts.
The Peggy Guggenheim Collection wishes everyone an August that is (also) dedicated to art!
