Fondazione Emilio e Annabianca VedovaYou'll find the Spazio Vedova art space along the tranquil Zattare esplanade, facing Giudecca Island. It was originally used to store salt and later boats. In the 1970s, Vedova saved the building from demolition, and between 2006 and 2009, under the supervision of Renzo Piano, the giant space was converted into the exposition space of the Vedova Foundation. Exhibitions by various artists rotate through several times a year. The original bones of the building—the wave brickwork and enormous wooden ceiling timbers and supports—are attractions in their own right.
