Biennale Architettura 2016 - Collateral Event
This mission of the European Cultural Centre [ECC], which, as a place for reflection, research, and creation for interdisciplinary encounters, as well as a centre for resources and experimentation, provides the conditions to invite creative practices from all fields – visual art, performance, theatre, music, literature, architecture etc., seeing them as a process of learning and experiencing.
The historic centre is only populated by approx. 60,000 inhabitants, but it sustains: 45 museums and seven theatres, 14 foundations with the objectives to promote and develop culture; two leading universities, an art academy, a conservatory, and many public libraries; 32 consulates and regional offices of a.o. UNESCO, WHO, and the Council of Europe; places of worship for many religions, but Venice is also home to a large atheist association, and it is also the city of La Biennale di Venezia.
