Campo Santi Giovanni e Paolo, 2 dollars, Series: SOS. Venice – End or Beginning?

DISAPPEARING PEARL OF THE ADRIATIC COMMEMORATED IN PURE SILVER

Will Venice disappear without trace like Pompeii and legendary Atlantis? Will the tremendous forces of nature take over the impressive architecture of the city? There are numerous indications that Venice will soon disappear in the sea depths. The city is threatened not only by rising sea levels, but also by gradual landslides caused by the movement of tectonic plates. The Mint of Poland, concerned about the future of Venice and inspired by its fragile beauty, commemorated its distinctive landmarks in pure silver.

  • great gift idea for all art lovers and admirers of beautiful Venice!
  • commemorative and artistic value – interesting design alluding to Venetian Gothic
  • Venice landmarks shown through the prism of paintings by Canaletto and Francesco Guardi

The impressive architecture of the city has always been a source of inspiration for the great Italian painters. The sixth coin from the series “S.O.S. Venice – End or Beginning?” features the famous painting by Canaletto. One of his chefs-d’oeuvre depicts the Santi Giovanni e Paolo square with Gothic Franciscan basilica of the same name and Renaissance façade of Scuola Grande di San Marco looming in the background. The painting’s reproduction has been vividly reflected on the coin’s surface with the use of high-end digital printing. The bottom part of the reverse depicts the statue of condottiere Bartolomeo Colleoni cast by Andrea del Verrocchioю The effigy of the proud horseman restraining his magnificent stallion is one of the most famous equestrian sculptures in the world. This elegant high-relief frame perfectly complements the work art by Canaletto.
