For over 500 years the forma urbis of Venice has not changed, yet there is always room for modern architecture. Experience with us a lively a moving city.MOVEnice is a cultural institution that is committed to the diffusion of architectural culture. Among other things, it offers architectural tours in Venice's historic centre, on the lagoon islands and on the mainland of the Veneto.
Before historical and social background tours focus on modern and contemporary architecture and include projects by famous personalities such as Carlo Scarpa, David Chipperfield and Tadao Ando as well as by lesser-known local architects, which deal with the particularities of the lagoon city. Due to our contacts and experience we open doors normally closed to the public and answer your questions about building in Venice. Local architects accompany you away from the tourist paths in German, English, Italian or French.
