Contemporary art and architecture
Contemporary Art and Architecture In 2009 Tadao Ando, one of the best known and most popular architects in the world, completed the restoration works at the Punta della Dogana, an ancient building, which had formerly sheltered the custom houses of the Republic of Venice, so that the building could be opened to the public as a new centre of contemporary art, exhibiting works from François Pinault Collection. The building is located in one of the most extraordinary sites in Venice, at the tip of the Dorsoduro district, splitting Canal Grande from Canale della Giudecca. Also thanks to Tadao Ando, who enhanced this dramatic and astonishing element, our tour at the Punta della Dogana will be for you a unique experience, the rare possibility to mingle past and present, indoors and outdoors, with your eyes sliding from a work by Jeff Koons to the sight of the 16th c. St. George Church, from the sight of St Mark’s Square to a work by Maurizio Cattelan, and so on and on at every single window, at every single work.
