Curated by Cristina Taverna, the show comprises forty original works in pastels and collages which Luzzati produced for a new edition of the fourteenth-century Tuscan version of ‘Il Milione’, to be published by Nuages on occasion of the exhibition.
This material is accompanied by antique editions of the text, and by maps, ivories, ceramics and other objects from the Museo Correr collections – including the famous wooden statue which is said to depict Marco Polo himself. All in all, a fascinating show, laid out within the rooms dedicated to Venetian Civilisation.
