Visiting the Future Centre
“Shall tourists wander in search of wonderful scenarios (in San Marco or at Salute, in Campo de 'Frari or at San Giorgio or Rialto), the heart of Venice is to be found throughout silence, at San Salvador, in visceribus urbis”.
In these terms Giuseppe De Rita opened his book "San Salvador Project", published in 1988, and introduced us to the magic of San Salvador, the convent restored all along by Telecom Italia.
Actually, the Future Centre is an open space right into the heart of Venice, offering to both Venetians and foreign visitors the chance to rest in an oasis of peace, though enjoying an exhibition or an event throughout the elegant Renaissance Cloisters, or at the precious Refectory hall (our conference room).
