“An excellent experience “,” The great art on the banks of the Grand Canal “,” The house of contemporary art “. These are just some of the testimonies of those who could admire another of the well kept great treasures of the Lagoon, the Peggy Guggenheim Collection, the most important collection in Italy dedicated to American and European art of the 19 hundreds. The museum, housed in the Venier dei Leoni Palace, was purchased by the Guggenheim family with the intent, in which they succeeded, to create the largest museum of modern art of the 50s. The permanent collection exhibits the works of the greatest artists of the time: from Picasso to de Chirico, from Pollock to Kandinsky, from Duchamp to Brancusi, an exhibition made even more interesting thanks to short presentations to the works of young art-loving students. But we are not just talking about art in Venice, infact for those who want to combine a quiet visit to the museum with a good and sparkling drink with friends in a unique and particularly suggestive context, the Guggenheim opens to the public a magnificent garden embellished with numerous works of art, a real outdoor museum, the Sculpture Garden Patsy R. and Raymond D. Nasher, an ideal space for dinners, cocktails and parties. Furthermore, Terrace Marino Marini with a splendid view of the Grand Canal, reachable by gondola or by boat, great for a welcome cocktail. A panoramic terrace overlooking the Sculpture Garden and the Grand Canal, perfect location for breakfasts, brunches, lunches, gala dinners and evening events and finally the Museum Café, suitable for small groups.
