We Are Here

The Cultural Center Don Orione Artigianelli is located in Sestiere Dorsoduro (hard ridge), on the wide Calle connecting Canal Grande by Gallerie dell’Accademia – which contains masterpieces of Venetian painters up to the 18th century, among them Giorgione, Carpaccio and Bellini – to the quayside Zattere and its wonderful walk along Giudecca Canal.

Through a small calle, in few minutes you can reach the Peggy Guggenheim Collection, or by crossing the Accademia Bridge in about 20 minutes, going through the most beautiful and exclusive shopping streets, you can reach the heart of Venice: St Mark’s Square.

Or by boat (vaporetto) you can reach inabout 10 minutes, from Accademia stop, St Mark’s Square and Rialto Bridge with its typical fish market.
