City, History, Culture
The Misericordia is all this and much more.
The building was founded as a complex space for communication: even before its transformation into a multifunctional place, it was an example of prestige and innovation, as desired by Doge Gritti.
Today, the Misericordia is a fluid space where history and culture interact with the surrounding area. A highly qualified and technologically advanced building which revives the Scuola’s ancient vocation of hospitality, with a modern approach.
The Scuola Grande della Misericordia is situated in a secluded yet bright urban space: a compact and elegant building, rising from the depths of the lagoon waters, a Venetian vision in shades of terracotta, a continuously evolving place that evokes ancient and future ideals.

Redevelopment and Restoration
