This church was closed for a long time, during my visit to Venice I was unable to get in (there was no reason to even try). Now it will be leased to Mexico for restoration and Biennale exhibitions for the next 9 years. More photos of the inside. Definitely going to see it when we’re in Venice next.
In an agreement with the Venice Comune, the Church of San Lorenzo will become a permanent home for Mexico’s work in future art and architecture biennales over the next nine years. Although the space is not yet in a safe condition to allow visitors, individuals will be invited to view the ongoing restoration from the entrance.
Here is the inside of the church:
Here is what Nono did in there:
