"Teatrino Palazzo Grassi" in Museum Palazzo Grassi is a contemporary architectural gem w/ free shows! I also love the interior and the bar in the hall...

This theater is part of the Museum Palazzo Grassi. Restored in 2013, is the third stage of François Pinault's cultural project in Venice after the restoration of Punta della Dogana and Palazzo Grassi. 

I bumped into this contemporary architectural gem thanks to the nice events organized there. Indeed, in this auditorium with 225 seats, they host all-year-long a rich and varied cultural program, like screenings, conferences, workshops, live performance and any kind of concert (from classic music to jazz or electronic).

Most of the events are free of charge -- all you need to do sometimes is to preschedule your free tickets. You just need to follow up the social media pages to stay updated and see the next events.

The interior is minimal and modern, brightened by the wall painted white and ice grey. In the hall there is also a bar, where you can drink nice cocktails before the event or after the concerts, surrounded by nice people of every age, in a very international environment.

In addition, I actually love visiting the temporary exhibitions at Palazzo Grassi, next to the Theater, and Punta della Dogana (one of the most breathtaking spots of Venice from which to take pics of S. Mark's square). With one ticket (15 euro) you can visit both exhibitions in one day, and it's really worth it!

Ps: have a look at the bookshop inside the Palazzo Grassi museum, they have the best catalogues of art exhibitions done in Venice and Italy.

"Stadio Pierluigi Penzo" is Venice's football stadium. It's a very welcome break from the otherwise sterile life in the lagoon city. Come slightly drunk!
