Palazzo Bembo is located on the Canal Grande, a few steps away from the Rialto bridge. It was built by the noble family of Bembo in the 15th century.
Today, after years of neglect, Palazzo Bembo is finding back to its original atmosphere. It is becoming the home again of the arts, culture and education. Under a new ownership, the decision has been made to restore Palazzo Bembo and to make room for exhibitions in cooperation with la Biennale di Venezia and with the hosting of two exhibitions in 2011 and several world class exhibitions in 2012. The exhibitions in Palazzo Bembo are organized by the Dutch NonProfit Organization GlobalArtAffairs Foundation.
