All visitors will receive a pencil and paper to sketch their favorite spot at the Palazzo Venier dei Leoni. Visitors will be invited to take photographs of their drawings and share them on Social Networks with the hashtag #DrawingTheGuggenheim.

Peggy's Unfinished Palace

Workshop for children. The Palazzo Venier dei Leoni is an unfinished palace better known as the “palazzo non finito” since it has only one floor despite the original design, conceived by the architect Lorenzo Boschetti, having five. Let’s become architects for the day, completing the project and then realizing a 3D model together!

Palazzo Venier dei Leoni

Let’s discover Palazzo Venier dei Leoni. Free guided tours on the history of Palazzo Venier dei Leoni, the location of the Peggy Guggenheim Collection. Participants will discover the history of the building, from its creation to the present day, focusing on the period during which Peggy Guggenheim made it her home.
