  • Placed on the porch of the left of piazza San Marco (the Basilica), the store's General insurance property, Olivetti and is managed by the FAI (Italian Environment Fund), which oversaw the restoration; the shop is open to the public upon payment of a 5 Euro. The interest of the store is, in my view, limited to the intervention of accommodation rooms, formerly part of a shop, effettuatovi by the Venetian architect Carlo Scarpa, which earned him the national prize for Olivetti. The creation of the architect expressed interest that he has always shown for Museum spaces, the reconstruction of existing environments and the modernization of ancient structures. To take the quick tour inside the store, you can pick the essential lines and refined, and the attention to detail, consistent work of this illustrious architect and artist; Scarpa played, almost maniacal precision, using materials and colours, waving to each other, to create a collection full of ideas for an attentive and curious visitor. Beyond this, the store does not offer more, if not a series of typewriters, whose appreciation is reserved for fans of the genre; There are no panels illustrating how we see, nor Miss Lady on ticket sales was able to introduce in some way the visit, albeit with the delivery of a brochure. So, in practice, those wishing to see the work carried out by the architect Shoe inside the store, can safely enter, pausing at the entrance, and let your gaze wander around himself, or maybe even just have a look from the outside through the Windows. The pay 5 euros ticket ultimately does not add more, which lays in my opinion on behalf of the FAI; would be quite desirable to enrich your visit with adequate support, to drive and offer to those concerned about what the store was created and on its eclectic author.

  • When I went, there was an exhibition showcasing Olivetti's influence on modern offices with their modular office furniture. But the main attraction is the building interior itself. 
  • Interesting little gallery just off St Marks square. Its quite the contrast sat in among 16th century architecture. The space is pleasant to walk around and the design is appealing. Its not everyone's...  more »

  • One of Scarpa's masterpieces in Venice.
  • Free if you take no photo
  • FAI saved this incredible design shop by Olivetti from the middel XX century. A must see
  • Gorgeous. Another gem in one of Italy's most beautiful square, don't miss it, however the first floor holding hands children because the architect was not fond of the parapets, at a point at the bottom of the shop there is. Not to be missed
