- LOCATION: Palazzo Grassi, Canal Grande
Palazzo Grassi is a sophisticated, neoclassically-inspired 18th century building, the work of Giorgio Massari. Some frescoes attributed to Alessandro Longhi decorate the staircase.
In 1983, the building passed to the Fiat group, who commissioned the Milanese architect Gae Aulenti to renovate it. It became one of Europe’s most prestigious exhibition centres: under the guidance of distinguished directors (including Pontus Hulten, Paolo Viti and others), Palazzo Grassi presented ambitious, highly successful exhibitions, dedicated to the art and history of great civilisations.
The Palazzo Grassi is now owned by the François Pinault Foundation and is run by Monique Veaute: located in Campo San Samuele and overlooking the Grand Canal, the building is the ideal venue for large, temporary exhibitions, some of which are based in whole or in part on the resources of the immense Pinault collection.
