The Jesuits Convent

27 January, 2012

Do you know that the huge Convent once owned by the Jesuits Order is going to be restored by the Venice University of Architecture (IUAV) and the local government and will host a student house, a cafè, a library and many other services?

    I have seen this building a few times and wondered about it. What is it being used for now, is it empty? I thought with the bricked up windows it looked like a prison…

    Good news indeed! (Architects Rule, you know…). I agreewith Howard, it looked like a forlorn prison, down to the police substation at the south end. Life returns.

    Great. I always thought what a waste it was. I thiught they may have made it into apartments. Glad it’s getting a new life.
