ARTIKA reaffirms its commitment to art by participating in the restoration of The Piazza San Marco in Venice by Canaletto

ARTIKA THYSEN CANALETTO

ARTIKA has participated as a special collaborator in the restoration and technical study of one of the masterpieces housed in the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum in Madrid, The Piazza San Marco in Venice, painted by Giovanni Antonio Canal (Canaletto) in 1723. In this way, the publishing house reaffirms its commitment to art, artists and the curators of their works.

The restoration was carried out between December 2018 and December 2019 and was made possible thanks to a crowdfunding campaign in which more than 600 people and entities participated. With ARTIKA's contribution, the initial fundraising objectives were far exceeded, reaching 55,000 euros.

On 10 February, the restored painting was presented at the Thyssen-Bornemisza National Museum with the participation of Guillermo Solana, Artistic Director of the Museum, Evelio Acevedo, Managing Director, and Ubaldo Sedano, Head of Restoration, and was also attended by ARTIKA's Global Director, Marc Buil.

Passion for art is one of ARTIKA's main tenets, which is why this is not the first time it has collaborated with museums and/or foundations to carry out innovative projects. Since its creation in 2003, ARTIKA has been growing and making its importance in the world of culture and art known through its works and its participation in several restorations, studies, research projects and exhibitions, including the one mentioned here with the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum in Madrid.
