Gallerie dell’Accademia Until 2 December 2012, as part of an ad hoc exhibition (The Titian never seen. The flight into Egypt and great Venetian painting), at the Gallerie dell’Accademia, visitors can admire see the outstanding work conserved for centuries overseas in which Titian first discovers nature: "The Flight into Egypt" of 1507. It took 12 years of accurate restoration by the Hermitage to bring back the colours, the light, the details, the revolutionary force of this work, carried out for Andrea Loredan and his new palace on the Grand Canal, Ca' Vendramin Calergi, which now houses the Casino. To return "The Flight into Egypt" to Italy, because of its imposing dimensions (204 × 324 cm) and disconcerting for the vitality of the landscape, an international agreement was necessary between the State Hermitage Museum, the Superintendence for Historical, Artistic and Ethno-anthropological Heritage, the Museum Complex of Venice and the municipalities of the Lagoon, the National Gallery of London and the Hermitage Foundation Italia. Exhibited in London soon after its restoration, "The Flight into Egypt" – which rightly considered Titian’s first masterpiece of – was brought directly from England to the Gallerie dell’Accademia, where it will be the centrepiece of a precious exhibition that brings together around twenty paintings by great Venetian masters who, in the late 15th and early 16th centuries, helped to innovate the view of nature (Bellini, Giorgione, Sebastiano del Piombo, Lotto, etc.); it will then returned to the Hermitage, where it has already been announced that it will not be move again.
