Palazzo Giustinian Lolin is the seat of the Warwick in Venice programme. It is next to the famous Academia Bridge, and on the Grand Canal.

Venice is a Schrödinger's city: it might be alive, it might not. The problem is that everyone wants to check its health by visiting it.[

Like all palazzos here, the building has its exit on Canal Grande. This water door, called porta d'acqua, is vital: deliveries, water taxis, emergency services... all use them.
