The Home of The Human Safety Net

Piazza San Marco, 105, 30124 Venice, Italy

The Home of The Human Safety Net is hosted on the third floor of Procuratie Vecchie in St. Mark’s Square in Venice. A global movement of people helping people initiated by Generali, The Human Safety Net aims to unlock the potential of people living in vulnerable circumstances: families with children aged 0 to 6 years and refugees supporting their integration into their host countries through work and entrepreneurship.

The building – once offices and living quarters of the high officials of the Venetian republic, the Procurators of St. Mark’s – has been home to the offices of Generali since 1832 and is now open to the public for the first time in 500 years. 

Thanks to the interactive Exhibition A World of Potential, The Home of The Human Safety Net, is meant to lead visitors along a surprising and unexpected journey to discover their strengths and learn about the social impact of The Human Safety Net programmes and how they can take action. The Art Studio – meant to host temporary exhibitions – flanks the permanent Exhibition.

The Home of the Human Safety Net is also an open space for our partners to become a catalyst for the ESG agenda in a city that aims to become the «World Capital of Sustainability».
