To mark Venice in Peril’s half century we are launching an Appeal to fund the conservation of the early 18th-century ‘Trinita’ wellhead in the great cloister of the Archvio di Stato
Funded by the Acqua Alta 2019 Appeal, to repair and safeguard the marmorino walls and terracotta floors of Palladio’s Tablino and spiral staircase.
Venice in Peril Fund celebrates its 50th Anniversary in 2021. It was founded in 1971, following on from the work of the Italian Art and Archives Rescue Fund that had initially been set up after the 1966 floods which ravaged both Florence and Venice.
The storms and flooding in November 2019 damaged the exterior of the church. In particular the windows in the south of the church were further weakened by the strong winds and began leaking rain.
After a £55,000 Appeal the conservation of the Nativity Triptych in the Accademia Galleries began in late 2019 and continues through 2021.

The iconostasis – a screen with icons between sanctuary and nave – is richly expressive of Veneto-Byzantine tradition. The stonework dates to 1100 and the paintings to the early 15C.
