The Bevilacqua La Masa Foundation was born in 1898, soon after the Venice Biennale, and takes its name after its founder, Felicita Bevilacqua, widow of the La Masa general. She donated her family mansion, Ca' Pesaro, to the Venice Municipality, with the condition that it should be used for the good of the city's artistic culture. Today the Foundation's main seat is in San Marco, but it continues on being a reference point for the young artists it brings out and patronizes.

The Peggy Guggenheim Foundation is the most important museum in Italy and one of the most important in Europe for modern art, especially from the first half of the 20th century, and was born thanks to the patronizing work of Peggy Guggenheim, who is buried in the museum's garden. Relatively small, the museum nonetheless hosts important treasures of art by the greatest masters, from Dali to Picasso, from Magritte to the Italian futurists, and is a must see for all modern art lovers.
