San Polo - Venice

Carlo Goldoni`s House

Today, the museum section of Ca’ Goldoni is a magical , theatrical place, in which all the resources of modern museum design have been exploited to safeguard the fabric of this unique Gothic palace and also provide visitors - especially young visitors - with a interactive layout that is both informative and pleasurable. Particular attention has been focused on the performance of theatrical works, with each room having large television screens that show a number of various productions of Goldoni’s work (taken from Italian State Television archives and other sources). The layout combines the most recent computer and video technology with traditional displays of the works of art and documents that formed the core of the original collection. The exhibition spaces on the first floor - together with the reception area on the ground floor - have been designed so that they can accommodate all the various types of visitors to the museum: scholars, families, tourists, school groups. There are also all the necessary facilities which might be required by disabled visitors. As well as being an exhibition space, however, the Casa del Carlo Goldoni continues to function as an important study centre with modern facilities and equipment.
