Biblioteca Nazionale Marciana | Venipedia®

Venipedia®

The National Marciana Library was born from the idea of Francesco Petrarca, who decided to donate his books to the city Venice in order to found a public library in 1362. The project did not actually go ahead until 1537, when its construction began in Piazzetta San Marco to the designs of Jacopo Sansovino. It also received a large collection of books donated by Cardinal Bessarion to the Serenissima in 1468.

The main section of the library is currently located in the ancient Mint, and winds up to the Palazzo of the Sansovino Library.

The library predominantly preserves works of ancient culture of literary, philosophical, historical and patristic type, as well as cartographic, graphic, musical and theatrical materials. Of course, there are also important collections of Venetian origin and a wide range of Venetian publications, considering that the Library has been regularly receiving a copy of all the editorial production of the territory.
