Palazzo Donà is one of the oldest palaces situated in the north-west frontage of Campo San Polo. Known as Palazzo Donà Brusa, it was apparently the first home to the aristocratic Donà family. The beginnings of Palazzo Donà date back to the early 14th century, with a visible influence of Byzantine and Early Gothic in its architecture.
A new page in the history of this exquisite place will be filled by the artistic activity of the Signum Foundation.
Here in the Palazzo exhibitions take place every two years accompanying Biennale di Venezia.
The Signum Foundation is an art foundation, social enterprise and an aid organisation. Signum’s main activities centre around providing support to youngsters in need and promoting 20th and 21st century art internationally, with a particular focus on Polish art.
