The route through the exhibition opens with the uncompleted project for a temporary pavilion at the Lido, follows on with the new entrance and ticket office for the Giardini (1951-52) and continues with the pavilions for Venezuela and Italy, built in the sixties.
The exhibition represents a great occasion to present the Archivio Scarpa, which became state property last year, is currently being reorganised and which is awaiting a permanent home. The collection is made up of 31,400 pieces which include drawings, sketches, photographs, audio-visual material and project information dating from 1927 to 1978.
