Cultura Spettacolo a Venezia
Culturaspettacolovenezia.it has, since 2001, tried to be a place on the Web that, while promoting events organized by the Cultura e Spettacolo section of the Venice Municipality, has always tried to be different. Not limiting itself to show endless lists composed by mere “What, how and when”, its effort tends towards giving the reader several occasions to stop by, to deepen his examination, to reflect, avoiding the danger of being just a copy of so many similar sites online.

Palazzo Grassi
Palazzo Grassi was built on the Grand Canal between 1748 and 1772 for the wealthy Bolognese Grassi family, right before the fall of the Republic in 1797. The building has passed various owners, until, in 1983, it was purchased by Gianni Agnelli's FIAT, restored and modernized. From then on, and until 2005, Palazzo Grassi has hosted some of the most important and prestigious artistic exhibitions in Venice, and, after a further remodernization, has recently re-opened to the public.

Oriental Art Museum
The Oriental Art Museum, set in the ancient home of the Pesaro family in San Stae, represents one of the most important collections of Oriental art in Europe. The museum is almost entirely based off the collection that Enrico di Borbone, Count of Bardi, acquired during his travels around the world, between 1887 and 1889. The pieces, that have recently undergone accurate restorations, come for the most part from Edo- period Japan (1600-1868), but Chinese and Indonesian objects can be seen as well.

Scala Contarini del Bovolo in Venice
Venezia is often said to have “hidden” museums, constituted by a patrimony of monuments built by charity associations that were at the time embellished with artistic masterworks of architecture and painting. Such is the case of Scala Contarini del Bovolo, Ospedaletto, the Crociferi oratory, and the Zitelle church. Contrary to what many people think, it is possible to visit these monuments at any time of year, booking your visits at the call center of IRE, the association that manages such places today.
