Recommendation by Lemi

Punta della Dogana used to be Venice’s former Sea Customs House before Japanese architect Tadao Ando transformed it into a contemporary arts center in the late 2000s. The original building was completed in 1682, under Italian architect Giuseppe Benoni. The museum is characterized by a tower crowned with two Atlases lifting a golden bronze sphere carrying the goddess Fortuna. Punta della Dogana also showcases temporary exhibitions regularly, curated by the Pinault Collection of luxury goods tycoon François Pinault.
