DESCRIPTION
Located in Campo San Samuele and overlooking the Canal Grande, Palazzo Grassi presents major temporary exhibitions, some of which are based in whole or in part on François Pinault's Collection.
 
The building is the last palazzo on the Grand Canal having been built after the collapse of Venice Republic in 1797. Its nobility highlights the historical importance of the collection's masterpieces, that may well feel at home here, in the dialogue between Neoclassical architecture and modern renovation solutions created by architect Tadao Ando. Palazzo Grassi is of interest to connoisseurs of contemporary architectural styles as well, who praise their harmony.
