Then there are those devoted to contemporary art such as the Palazzo Grazzi and Punta della Dogana as well as those focussing on costumes like the Palazzo Mocenigo and the Fortuny Museum. In Venice it is possible to take in art in all its forms in its numerous MUSEUMS, GALLERIES, CHURCHES, FOUNDATIONS and BUILDINGS.
