Venice Boat Show and Biennale at the Arsenale
Venice Boat Show and Biennale at the Arsenale.
From June 18 to 23, the Biennale and Boat Show take up residence in the Venice Arsenale.
The Venice Boat Show and Biennale will share the North Arsenal for a week. With over 50,000 square meters of water space and more than 6,000 exhibition spaces, you can admire both nautical art and contemporary art. The best Italian and international shipyards will exhibit their yachts and boats, the product of the latest research in technology and design, resulting in true works of art for the nautical sector. Ferretti, Riva, and Cranchi are just some of the Made in Italy luxury shipyards represented at the Venice Boat Show, set against the backdrop of the Arsenale’s ancient shipyards, where ships of the Serenissima Repubblica were built until the 18th century.
With the same entrance ticket, visitors to the Boat Show will also enjoy the privilege of seeing the works of the Venice Biennale on display at the Arsenale, dominated by the enormous “Building Bridges” installation. Created by Lorenzo Quinn, son of the famous actor Anthony Quinn, the monumental sculpture is composed of 6 bridges in the shape of intertwining hands, 15 meters high and 20 wide, representing the universal values of humanity: love, friendship, faith, hope, help, and wisdom. The Venice Boat Show and Biennale represent a unique and original dialogue that can only exist in a place such as Venice.
From Bloom, you can reach the Arsenale with line 1 vaporetto that stops just 5 minutes away from the B&B.
