Restoration of the ancient Artiglierie building in the Arsenale

In a joint effort, the Comitato Italiano per Venezia secured funding for the restoration of the dozens of iron window and door frames in the ancient Artiglierie building in the Arsenale.In time for part of it to be used as an exhibition venue for the 1999 Venice Biennale (the Superintendency used its ministerial budget to restore the roof and Special Law funding was allocated for other necessary work). The Italian Committee will finance further restoration work in the vast building in 2000.
