Starting from June 7 the first floor of the Gallerie dell’Accademia will be interested by an extensive restoration project, aiming to reinforce, renovate and refurbish the first floor of the museum: this will be the final step in our “Grandi Gallerie” project.
The restoration project is funded by the Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Tourism, and will last for a total of 960 days. It will be divided in four stages to ensure the opening of most of the museum rooms.

The project aims are the following:
1) Building stabilisation, roofs and walls will be stabilised by insertion of tie-beams, putting the conservation of original and ancient structures to the forefront.
2) Functional update, plant components for air conditioning, lighting and safety will be updated, and all the existing architectural barriers removed.
3) Restyling and refurbishment, skylights will be restored and the original architecture of the buildings will be valorised. The interpretation of our collections and communication materials will be updated, with new labels and media devices.

During the first stage, rooms from VI to XII, and XV will be closed to the public. The relocation of the artworks exhibited in the rooms mentioned above will guarantee the view of the collection masterpieces.

However the following artworks won’t be on display:

Paolo Veronese, Il convitto in casa di Levi, cat. 203;
Paolo Veronese, Crocifissione, cat. 255;
Paolo Veronese, Annunciazione, cat. 260;
