Who we are

The Querini Stampalia Foundation is by nature a contemporary space.

Founded in 1869 by Count Giovanni Querini, the last descendant of his family, it is one of the oldest foundations in Italy. A place of cultural production dedicated to the local and global communities.

A house that became a museum but remains a Home.

A library, open when others are closed.

An archive that, through the life of a family, tells the story of a city.

A "secret" garden designed by Carlo Scarpa.

The 16th century in dialogue with the 20th century: from Bellini to Scarpa, from Longhi to Botta, from Pastor to De Lucchi.

 

Mission

Giovanni Querini Stampalia envisioned an institution that would foster enlightenment at an individual and cultural level--"to promote the study of worthwhile disciplines," in his words-- and this remains the mission of the Foundation to this day: to create an open atmosphere that nurtures learning, scholarship, and the exchange of viewpoints.
