The Fondazione Querini Stampalia is a cultural institution in Venice, created in 1868 by Conte Giovanni, the last descendant of the Venetian Querini Stampalia family. Architect Carlo Scarpa designed interior, exterior, and garden elements and spaces on the ground floor of the historic building.
Today it houses a Library, a Museum and temporary exhibition spaces.
The Museum recreates the atmosphere of a patrician residence, with the XVII century neoclassical furniture, porcelain, sculpture, globes and paintings from the XIV to XX centuries on exhibit, most of them from the Venetian school.
Here you can also admire paintings by Giovanni Bellini, Jacopo Palma il Vecchio and il Giovane, Bernardo Strozzi, Marco and Sebastiano Ricci, Giambattista Tiepolo, Pietro Longhi and Gabriel Bella.
The aim of the Foundation is to invest in culture and to promote the study and the enhancement of its historic heritage and the legacy of its museum.
Address: Santa Maria Formosa, Castello 5252, 30122 Venice
