The Story of the Giorgio Cini Foundation told at a Touch!
The tour retraces the history of this monumental complex, now home to one of the most important cultural institutions in Italy. The visit begins at the Renaissance Palladio and Buoara courtyards; then into the Cenacolo hall with the facsimile of The Cana Wedding Feast; the boiserie designed by De Lucchi and up the Longhena staircase and into the silence of the libraries enriched by their precious collections. The itinerary ends with the view of the Borges Labyrinth designed by Randoll Coate.
New Reception Area features Ticket Office and Bookshop for visitors
The multilingual members of our staff manage a new 100-square meter information center which is home to the ticket office and bookshop. Here visitors can obtain information, book guided tours, browse and buy merchandise that has been carefully selected and designed for the Foundation. When the installation and testing phase is complete, the new reception area will become a focal point for the distribution of multiple services to the visiting public.
