C’è un pezzo d’Italia a Buckingham Palace: alla Queen’s Gallery, situata nella parte visitabile del palazzo reale, apre il 19 maggio la mostra “Canaletto & the Art of Venice”, Canaletto e l’arte di Venezia. La rassegna riunisce per la prima volta in quasi quarant’anni le maggiori opere dell’artista veneto, celebre soprattutto per le sue vedute della città lagunare.

La mostra rimarrà aperta fino al 12 novembre; e già promette di suscitare entusiasmi in un popolo come quello inglese, che nell’Ottocento aveva fatto dell’Italia e di Venezia in particolare una delle mete imprescindibili del grand tour – il viaggio “d’istruzione” che i giovani nobili usavano fare nel Continente.
