Biennale Sessions

On the occasion of the 15th International Architecture Exhibition, La Biennale di Venezia addresses Universities, Academies of Fine Arts and Higher Education Institutions with a special project.
La Biennale considers its Exhibition as a place where Universities, Academies of Fine Arts, Higher Education Institutions as well as Research Institutes can plan a visit especially designed for their educational activities, and it aims at providing them with particularly favourable conditions.

La Biennale offers each group of 50 participants belonging to an affiliated Institute of Higher Learning the following benefits:
a. special passes granting access to the Exhibition venues for three consecutive days, for € 20 per participant;
b. a location, free of charge, for a self-organized seminar, in one of the Exhibition venues, with basic technical equipment and assistance (press preview days are not included);
c. special attendance and participation conditions for coinciding events and initiatives organized by the Dance, Music, Theatre, and Cinema sectors;
d. discounted fees at snack areas and restaurants located at the Exhibition venues;
e. help with finding an accommodation in Venice with operators pre-selected by La Biennale;
f. reserved seats at conferences and other events organized by la Biennale at the Exhibition venues;
g. a special promotion and communication plan, including links to websites of participating institutions.
