The Misericordia Archives are located in a suggestive and strategic position, within the vivid hub developing around the area of Scuola Grande Della Misericordia. Just next to the Misericordia Abbey Church, the archives were recently restored and turned into fascinating multi-functional spaces, with a post-industrial twist, finished with wooden details, rough plaster walls, and concrete floor. They are provided with independent access and they are composed of two rooms, which are ready to be used for exhibiting with: professional lightning system, floor heating, walls can be drilled. This space is perfect for temporary exhibitions, cultural events, small cocktails.
The Chiesa dell’Abbazia Della Misericordia is a church of the 10th century situated in the vibrant Cannaregio district. The church was dedicated to Santa Maria di Val Verde and bound to the Misericordia Confraternity, who built the school, the hospital and the green areas around. At the beginning of the 19th century, the building was in very bad conditions but was luckily restored by an ex-friar. In spite of this, the church was deprived of most of the works it had in the second half of the 19th century and was eventually closed in 1868. Nowadays, the deconsecrated church is an appealing location to be promoted and appreciated.
