Prada Foundation

Ca’ Corner della Regina is the Venetian headquarters of the Fondazione Prada, an institution founded by Miuccia Prada and Patrizio Bertelli to support contemporary art.

The historic Baroque palace was built between 1724 and 1728 by Domenico Rossi for the Corner family of San Cassiano, is a Venetian palazzo overlooking the Grand Canal and located in the Sestiere of Santa Croce. It was erected on the ruins of the palace in which Caterina Corner, Queen of Cyprus, was born in 1454.

In 1800 it was donated by the last heir of the Corner family to Pope Pius VII, housing the Monte di Pietà pawnbroking institution, and after 1975, the Historic Archives of the Biennale di Venezia.

Since 2011, it has been the Venetian headquarters of Fondazione Prada, which has launched 5 research exhibitions in this venue until today, concurrently with a preservation and repair program of the palazzo which is developing in several phases.

Address: Calle de Ca’ Corner, Santa Croce 2215, 30135 Venice
