Biennale Sessions

On the occasion of the 16th International Architecture Exhibition, La Biennale di Venezia addresses Institutes of Higher Learning, Research Centers, Universities, Academies of Fine or Applied Arts with a special project.


  • La Biennale di Venezia considers the Exhibition as a place where universities, academies of fine arts, higher education institutions, as well as research institutes, can plan a visit especially designed for their educational activities, and aims at providing these institutions with favourable conditions to organise such visits.


La Biennale offers each group of 50 persons (faculty and students included) belonging to one single institution:

  • 20 € special pass per student giving access to the Exhibition venues for three consecutive days;
  • a location, free of charge, for a seminar, to be organised by the same institution, in one of the Exhibition venues, together with their facilities (the press preview days are not included);
  • special attendance conditions at concurrent events and initiatives organised by the Dance, Music, Theatre, and Cinema sectors as well as by the Historical Archives;
  • discounts at snack areas and restaurants located at the Exhibition venues;
  • help in organising their stay;
  • participation in conferences and other initiatives organised by La Biennale at the Exhibition venues;
  • a special promotion and communication plan, including links to participating universities and institutions on La Biennale’s website.
