  Galleria dell'Accademia
by Cristian_Uluru

The wonderful Galleria dell'Accademia is the most important museum of Venice. It has occupied a number of sites since being established in 1807. At that time, the collection comprised pieces "liberated" from the churches and convents being suppressed in the city, which was then under the baleful occupation of Napoleon and his troops. The collection was first sited in the former church of Santa Maria della Carita, and then in Palladio's Convento dei Canonici Lateranensi.
