Museums

Palazzo Fortuny

Donated to the City of Venice in 1956 to be used as a center for culture in relationship to art

The large Gothic palazzo which hosts the museum, was transformed by Mariano Fortuny into his own atelier of photography, stage-design, textile-design and painting. The building retains the rooms and structures created by Fortuny, together with tapestries and collections.

The collections comprise an extensive number of pieces and materials which reflect the various fields investigated in the artist’s work. The Museum hosts important exhibitions by contemporary artists.
