France defeats USA?

12 April, 2007

At the end, it seems that the French Art Collector Francois Pinault  has winned the contest for the new museum in the Punta della Dogana  buildings between Canal Grande and Giudecca Canal.
But it hasn’t been a real fight, because the Americans of the Guggenheim Foundation  didn’t present the whole list of artworks they meant to expose, as it was required!
Now  Pinault  and Jean Jacques Aillagon, Palazzo Grassi Director, have to arrange the works with the Major Massimo Cacciari and sign the contract. And we are speaking of a 25 millions Euro project!!
