The International Gallery of Modern Art of Venice is sheltered by the celebrated Ca’Pesaro, a historical edifice and an architectural landmark of the city located on the even more reputed Grand Canal. On top of the fact the edifice in itself is a tourist sight not to be missed while in Venice, it is home to the International Gallery of Modern Art managed by MUVE, as well as to an Oriental Art Museum (located on the upper floor of the splendid white marble building).

The history of the Ca’Pesaro International Gallery of Modern Art begins somewhere around the early 20th century. Since then, its patrimony has enriched substantially, becoming one of the most important modern art museums in Italy. Thus, at present, it showcases an extensive collection of works by some of the most renowned modern artists of the 19th and 20th centuries, such as Umberto Boccioni, Morandi, Filippo de Pisis, Kandinsky, Klee and Chagall. Visitors can also browse through the works of Bonnard, Klimt, De Chirico and Rouault.

The Ca’Pesaro International Gallery of Modern Art is also home to sundry temporary exhibitions of painting and sculpture. Holding a Museum Pass gives tourists the opportunity to enter Ca’Pesaro with substantial discounts.
