The Venice Biennale was born by a resolution of the City Council on April 19 1893, proposing the creation of a National Art Exhibition to be held in the following year, to celebrate the silver jubilee of King Umberto and Margarita Savoy. The event actually took place two years later, and was reopened on April 30 1895. On this 55th exhibition entitled The Encyclopedic Palace, presented at the Central Pavilion (Giardini) live together works spanning the last century, along with several new commissions, including more than 150 artists from 37 countries. National participations were also exhibited, among which 10 of these participated for the first time. Side events were also promoted by different organizations and displayed in different areas of the city.
