a seam, a surface, a hinge, or a knot - Palazzo Giustinian Lolin
Fondazione Ugo e Olga Levi | Palazzo Giustinian Lolin
The Fondazione Ugo e Olga Levi Onlus for music studies is an institution dedicated since 1962 to musicological and ethnomusicological research in the Veneto region, national and European contexts. It organizes seminars and concerts, conferences and debates and, in general, private or public musical events in their highest expressions. The Fondazione ownes Palazzo Giustinian Lolin, a work by Baldassarre Longhena on the Grand Canal, where it hosts an important library specialized in the music sector, whose collection began with the nucleus of 19th and 20th century scores belonging to its founders. The Fondazione combines the cataloging and study of musical funds with an important publishing activity related to that research. In addition to being a venue for studies and high-level musical events, the Fondazione Levi also works in other cultural areas, with a lively exhibition and conference activity.
