Palazzo Leoni Montanari, a fine Baroque building (1678) commissioned by the family of the same name once active in the textile trade, houses a permanent display of a collection of Russian icons and a valuable collection of eighteenth-century Venetian painting.

Palazzo Leoni Montanari in Vicenza was transformed in the spring of 1999 into the Leoni Montanari Galleries to house the Intesa Sanpaolo collection of works of art which until then had remained a private collection and visible only to individuals. In this way the collection finally became available for public use thus avoiding the danger of dispersion of the works in the future.

On the main floor of Palazzo Montanari you can admire a very rich collection of canvases belonging to the last century of life of the Serenissima: Albotto, Canaletto, Carlevarijs, Guardi, Falca, Longhi, Mariesca, Ricci, Tiepolo, Zuccarelli are widely represented here.

On the top floor of Palazzo Leoni Montanari, instead, a selection of the 500 Russian icons belonging to the Intesa San Paolo collection; 130, to be exact, are on display in the rooms making Galleria Leoni Montanari a fundamental venue for the study of Russian icons in Italy.
