Inauguration of Sala Luigi Luzzatti

Istituto Veneto di Scienze, Lettere e Arti
Palazzo Loredan, Venice,
11 October 2013

A hall dedicated to Luigi Luzzatti was inaugurated at Palazzo Loredan, the building that hosts the Veneto Institute of Sciences, Letters and Arts. The occasion commemorated the 100th anniversary of his election as Prime Minister of Italy and concluded with the presentation of “Luigi Luzzatti Presidente del Consiglio” (“Luigi Luzzatti Prime Minister”), a book included in the “Luzzattiana Library. Sources and studies” book series.

The concept and outfitting were designed by our studio: we drew upon the experience accumulated during the restoration of Palazzo Loredan to insert museum pieces in a harmonious manner.

Those who will visit the hall will have the opportunity to leaf through the statesman’s papers, photos from his collection, letters, books, his awards and certificates of merit and thanksgiving: a few articles chosen among the thousands donated to the Institute by his heirs. 

Visitors will not be placed in front of such obstacles as museum cases; they will be encouraged to enter his world and experience his “public” life as well as “private” life which surfaces through his correspondence with his wife, children and father.

A pre-inaugural event was held in the early afternoon attended by Commander of the Order Gianni Zonin who, acting as Chairman of the Banca Popolare di Vicenza, contributed financially to the hall’s creation and Ambassador Sergio Romano who held a lectio magistralis on Luigi Luzzatti at Palazzo Franchetti.
