Mythological and fairytale characters
Multimedia program combines about 500 works of Russian artists who worked in Italy and of Italian masters who left their trace in Russian art, including those who contrib¬uted greatly to the architectural image of the Russian Museum palaces.
The program presents the oldest St. Petersburg park, which has been part of the Russian Museum since 2003. The Summer Garden is the favourite brainchild of Peter the Great. It was created at the beginning of the 18th century following the traditions of the best examples of European Parks and Gardens.
The Program includes works of artists from the collections of two museums - The Russian Museum and the Museum of Republic of Karelia, dedicated to "Kalevala". It includes annotations of the works and biographies of artists.
