1 1 1 1 Giovanni Bellini's 500th Un capolavoro per Venezia (A Masterpiece for Venice) is a project to bring (back) to Venice a great piece of art of the golden age of Venetian painting from major European museums. The first such piece is the Drunkennes of Noah, likely Bellini's latest work of around 1515. The masterpiece is a reference point for the reconstruction of the final years of Bellini's career, 500 years after his death.(in the photo: detail).
