- Access Palazzo Grimani Tribuna
Admired and celebrated for the prestige, wealth and elegance of its collection of antiquities, the Tribuna of Grimani Palace lost over time the function of Antiquarium, i.e. private museum, for which it was originally set up. Without the Greek and Roman statues, the relatively modestly-sized hall is now bare, and one can now only appreciate the sophisticated architectural decoration that marked the placement of the sculptures in the sixteenth century. Although empty, this precious casket undoubtedly emanates a very strong attraction, accentuated by the presence of a single work, the Ganymede carried off by the eagle marble group, recently brought back and hung up high at the centre of the Tribuna, as it once was.
