The Arsenale is the largest pre-industrial production centre of the world. It is an important place for Venice, not only because the Serenissima's fleet was built there, but also because these shipyards, depots and workshops were the symbol of the military, economical and political power Venice had back in time.The Biennale di Venezia first employed the Arsenale in 1980, for the 1st International Architecture Exhibition. Since 1999, La Biennale di Venezia has been particularly attentive to the restoration works designed for the Arsenale, in order to plan a new functional exhibition arrangement in the areas conceded by the administration of the complex. In addition to the central international exhibitions of the Art and the Architecture sections, more and more countries rent spaces in the Arsenale for their national pavilions.More about, see in UiU:
