What to see at Ca’ Rezzonico: must-see works
One of the must-see museums in Venice is Ca’ Pesaro. The works inside are part of the collection of the Venice International Gallery of Modern Art and are housed in a building with a fascinating history.
Not always first-time visitors to Venice visit Ca’ Pesaro, but there are authentic masterpieces inside, which have a unique history and tie in with the city’s artistic history, always seeking a balance between ancient and modern.

Catalonia is the Spanish region that is the birthplace of Salvador Dalí, one of the most eclectic and innovative artists of the 20th century and the father of Surrealism. Figueres, the town where he was born; Port Lligat, where he lived for more than 30 years; and Púbol, where the castle he gave to his beloved wife Gala is located, make up the so-called ‘Dalí Triangle’. The theatre-museum, the house-museum and the castle were conceived by the artist himself, who lived in all three, and still today they are a concentrate of Surrealist thought and art and a testimony to Dalí’s incredible world.

Klimt’s Judith II, also known as Salome, is a work imbued with mystery and power.
Created in 1909, it is the second version of a subject Gustav Klimt had already tackled. This fascinating and provocative depiction of the biblical heroine mixes beauty and strength, emphasising the eternal appeal of the figure of Judith.
In this post, I will tell you the story of the work and the subject it represents, exploring the world of Klimt and the many interpretations that this work, which is now part of the collection of the International Gallery of Modern Art at Ca’ Pesaro in Venice, has aroused over the years.
