Palazzo Dandolo on the Grand Canal

The Scuola Internazionale di Grafica offers the unique opportunity to live and work in a Venetian Palazzo on the Grand Canal for periods ranging from two to eight weeks.

Palazzo Dandolo Paolucci is a Renaissance palace overlooking the Grand Canal. A rennovation was made in the 17th century on the site of a previous Gothic building of the 14th century and was remodeled in later periods. A large terrace with a balustrade was added on top in 1924. Palazzo Dandolo belonged to the Paolucci family in the 18th century and, from the early 19th century, to the Parisi family.

Since 2013, the Palazzo has hosted important exhibitions during the Venice Biennale.
