Geminiano Cozzi and his Porcelain

Ca’ Rezzonico – Museum of 18th-century Venice
Good To Know

July 12, 2016

The exhibition at Ca’ Rezzonico in Venice features for the first time over 600 pieces of porcelain made by Geminiano Cozzi (1728-1798) on loan from public and private collections from around the world. The exhibition includes many pieces never seen by the public.

Organised chronologically and thematically, the exhibition presents the evolution of Cozzi’s manufacturing techniques and types of decoration, highlighting one of the most fascinating art-historical events of the 18th century. It also offers an overview of a manufacturing activity of the period that includes items of surprising modernity.

During the 18th century the Venetian Republic had no less than four porcelain factories, all of them opened by private enterprise. One of these was that of Cozzi and it’s to his extraordinary activity as an entrepreneur that the Fondazione Musei Civici di Venezia is now dedicating this first-ever retrospective.
