The city of Venice
Venice stretches across 120 small
islands in the Venetian Lagoon along
the Adriatic Sea, in Northeast Italy.
Historically known as La Serenissima
Repubblica (i.e. the ‘most serene’
republic), it has an extraordinary
historical heritage thanks to its role of
cultural and commercial crossroads
of Europe for a thousand years.
Venice is also a modern town. It is
the main city of the Veneto Region,
in Northeast Italy, and has a total
population of about 270,000
inhabitants: about 60,000 in the
historic centre; 180,000 in the
mainland, mostly in Mestre and
Marghera; 30,000 in the other
islands of the lagoon.

Ca’ Foscari Palace
The main seat of the University is Ca’ Foscari
Palace, the Venetian-Gothic building placed
in the largest bend of the Grand Canal. The
palace was purchased and renewed by Doge
Francesco Foscari in 1452.
It contains important artistic and architectural
works, such as a room with a 16th century
stucco work by the Venetian sculptor
Alessandro Vittoria (1525-1608) and a great
hall designed by the Venetian architect Carlo
Scarpa (1906-1978), with two murals by
Mario Sironi and Mario de Luigi.
Between 2004 and 2006 Ca' Foscari
underwent a painstaking restoration
programme, which was awarded the
prestigious “Premio Torta” in 2007.
It is possible to visit the palace with the Ca’
Foscari Tour Service (www.unive.it/tour).
