Following the exceptional tide that struck the city on the night of November 12, 2019, Venice suffered considerable damage.

The Palace of the Foundation Querini Stampalia has suffered major damage on the ground floor: the Scarpa Space, the Auditorium, the Book Deposits and the Bookshop are heavily damaged.

The books have also suffered major damage: 35 meters of miscellanea dating from the end of the 19th will have to undergo emergency conservation treatment.

It is therefore a question of preserving and safeguarding this jewel of the Venetian heritage.

The KBF CANADA Foundation works with Fondazione Querini Stampalia to preserve and safeguard this jewel of Venetian heritage. The Fondazione Querini Stampalia is at the service of the community; it has provided access to knowledge, arts, architecture and history since 1869, in particular through its library, museum and other cultural events. Founded in 1869, the Fondazione Querini Stampalia is the only institution in Venice to hold the entire heritage of an ancient and noble Venetian family. Inside this Renaissance palace, you can feel the emotion of art and beauty. It contains prestigious works of art by Giovanni Bellini, Antonio Canova and Pietro Longhi, as well as the elegant architectural modifications of the famous Carlo Scarpa and Mario Botta, among others.
