Supporting excellence in Venice
Conceived for the city of Venice and targeted at those who love it, this new cultural project, developed by Fondazione delle Arti (Venetian Arts Foundation), is headed by Olivier Lexa and Viola Romoli, under the supervision of international consultants. The Foundation, which was created to support high profile events connected with the tradition, identity and heritage of Venice, has established a Club delle Arti (Arts Club), a meeting point for art lovers whose aim is to offer visitors a new means of exploring both the city's centuries-old culture and its contemporary art. The Club offers a selection of world-class cultural events and is located in a prime position on the Grand Canal, at the historic Palazzetto Pisani, one of the few remaining literary salons in the city which has hosted prominent members of society including Gorbaciov, Bill Gates and Marina Abramovic. Excellence, invention, creativity and a dialogue among cultures and traditions from all over the world – which have always distinguished the spirit of the Serenissima – are the cornerstones of this new literary circle which offers international visitors a chance to experience the most authentic aspects of Venetian life.
