The Venice Programme: The Palazzo Pesaro Papafava

Canale della Misericordia

In the summer of 2006 Warwick University took the opporutnity to move to the piano nobile and part of the pian terreno of the Ca' Pesaro Papafava, pictured above, a Renaissance palace overlooking the Canale della Misericordia with a land entrance from the Calle de la Rachetta in Cannaregio. Staff and students have been utilising these facilties every year since then.

The Ca' Pesaro Papafava provides ideal facilities for Undergraduate and Postgraduate teaching and has permitted the Venice Programme to expand from just one term to the full year thereby allowing Warwick to establish a research centre in Venice. The Pesaro Papafava offers beautiful settings for academic conferences and is now equipped with digital projection facilities and wireless broadband.
