The Tre Oci palace was built at the beginning of the 1900s and is relatively new compared to the many other buildings that are found throughout Venice. Yet it has a special charm, linked to its neo-Gothic facade and its special position. The building is located on the Giudecca island and its name is in fact linked to the huge windows (called eyes, in Venetian “oci”) that dominate the facade, which overlook one of the most beautiful views of Venice.
I find the Tre Oci palace unique because it has a perfect location to enjoy the panorama that encompasses the church of Madonna della Salute, Palazzo Ducale and Piazza San Marco. All in one go and away from the hustle of tourists that crowd the center of Venice!
And what is more, the Tre Oci palace hosts photo exhibitions of great photographers such as Elliott Erwitt, Gianni Berengo Gardin, Helmut Newton and Sebastiao Salgado and a tiny but interesting book shop where I always find something to buy…not to be missed!
From September 22, the palace hosts a great exhibition dedicated to Werner Bischof (1916-1954), one of the most important photographers of the twentieth century, among the founders of the Magnum agency.
