One of the richest and most famous collections of Greek and Roman sculptures, known throughout Europe, was the one owned by Giovanni Grimani, Patriarch of Aquileia, a cultured and refined benefactor and patron of the arts. The most precious part of his collection, about two hundred statues, busts and ancient portraits, was enchantingly placed in a room of his palace at Santa Maria Formosa, named Tribuna. In 1587, Giovanni Grimani donated his collection to the Republic of Venice, under the single condition that a suitable exhibition location be found for its enjoyment by the public. The site chosen was the Antechamber of the Marciana Library, where the sculptures were transferred after Giovanni's death in 1593, creating what for over two hundred years became the Public Statuary of the Republic of Venice, admired by eminent people and intellectuals aware of the novelty of a museum open to all. The purpose of this project is to recreate these two unique moments through the help of sophisticated computer systems, giving new life to the Tribuna with the sculptures that once filled it and recomposing the Public Statuary as it appeared to eighteenth-century visitors.
