Biennale Sessions

For the 55th International Art Exhibition, la Biennale di Venezia addresses universities, academies of fine arts and higher education institutions with a special project.
- la Biennale di Venezia looks at the Exhibition as the 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;
- la Biennale di Venezia aims at providing these institutions with favorable conditions to organize such visits.
La Biennale offers each group of 50 persons (faculty and students included) belonging to one single institution:
 a. a 20 € special pass per student giving access to the Exhibition venues for three consecutive days;
 b. a location, free of charge, for a 2h debate session or seminar, to be organised by the same institution, in one of the Exhibition’s venues, together with their facilities (the press preview days are not included);
 c. a packet lunch at a discounted price during the three-days period in the Exhibition’s snack areas and restaurants;
 d. help in organizing their stay with la Biennale’s affiliated operators;
 e. participation in conferences and other events organized by la Biennale in the Exhibition’s venues.
 f. a special promotion and communication plan, including a page on la Biennale website reserved for the Biennale Sessions project, featuring links to participating universities and institutions and promotional posters in the venues.
