Punta della Dogana, one of the two museums belonging to the Pinault Foundation in Venice, was once the Customs House for the Most Serene Republic. The building, with its characteristic triangular shape, crowned with a tower surmounted by the Golden Ball, depicting the world supported by two Atlases, was completely renovated in 2009, transformed into a modern centre for contemporary art, designed by the minimalist Japanese architect Tadao Ando. The main features of the building are in fact its exposed concrete walls, which are precisely the signature of Ando. Punta della Dogana overlooks St. Mark’s Basin and, as the permanent home of the immense Pinault collection, has become the number one port of call for the most representative works of contemporary art and the place of choice to share them with the wider public. Inside the building, visitors can also find the Dogana Café, a beautiful area, again renovated by Ando, where they can enjoy exceptional food and wine with a beautiful view over the Lagoon.
