An outstanding palace sits in Venice and was built for Napoleon. This historical point of interest remained closed for over 100 years due to neglect. It finally was resurrected in part and opened its doors to the public in 2012 thanks to the multi-community and international restoration efforts arranged from donations. It took six years for the huge palace to be built under Napoleon’s orders. The painter Giuseppe Borsato was used as its interior designer. The structure is now known under the name ‘Museo Correr.’

Venice still has a distaste of Napoleon’s invasion upon them and the residents abandoned the idea of maintaining this only neo-Classical royal palace on Italian soil.  Though the organization World Monument Fund preserved a significant body of decorative works that would likely have otherwise degraded further, there is still more to be done

Maintaining its longstanding links with art and culture, famed jewelry company, Van Cleef & Arpels is contributing funds along with the Comité Français pour la Sauvegarde de Venise to help complete the restoration of the Emperor’s apartments at the Royal Palace of Venice.
