The La Storta Space
La Storta is an exhibition space located in the heart of Venice in the prestigious Old Jewish Ghetto.
Situated in a 500 year old renaissance bottega La storta is one of the most authentic exhibition spaces in Venice.
We offer a unique private exhibition space with a large vitrine, and lodgeable studio – a show window to 30 million visitors all year round from the Carnival to the Art and Architecture Biennale.
Due to La Storta’s location, the works of art are exposed to a large international audience, many of which are art buyers and collectors. During the art and architecture biennale the area attracts many journalists, museum directors and curators.
The space is divided into three parts. The main part is at the front with a very large window and a small courtyard. The wall exhibition space inside is approx. 42 sqm in the front. A 15 sqm living unit is offered at the back of the space. It includes a double bed, a bathroom with shower + wc and a small kitchen with a mini fridge. We also provide bed sheets, towels and cleaning service at the end of the stay. The living space is suitable for max. 2 people.
