12 November 2019 Venice Flooding – Support the Querini Stampalia Foundation

As a result of the exceptional flood that struck the city of Venice on the night of 12 November 2019, the Querini Stampalia Foundation suffered severe damage to the entire ground floor of the building where several utility systems and the elevators are currently not operational.

An initial survey revealed significant destruction to the spaces of the building designed by Carlo Scarpa, as well as to the Auditorium, the cafeteria and the bookshop.  The book collection was severely damaged: miscellaneous works from the late nineteenth century, occupying 35 meters of shelf space, require urgent treatment to ensure preservation. Also, modern publications and periodicals, occupying 600 meters were completely submerged in water.
