The Prisons, situated in a very central position in the hearth of Venice Historical Center of San Marco Square, is linked to the Doge’s Palace by the famous Bridge of Sighs. This historical building represents the age-old tradition and the prestige of a city unlike any other in the world.

The Prisons features an elegant big hall which can give hospitality to many prestigious cultural events, exhibitions, conferences, concerts etc. and is capable of accomodating 100 people.
Beside this hall there’s the “Sala Consiglio” which is characterized by walnut seventeenth-century furnishings and a vaulted frescoed ceiling. This room can be used for some important meetings or little conventions of great significance.
On the second floor, after an appropriate restoration which has not modified the historical essence of the building, “The Artistic Circle of Venice” gives hospitality to some cultural meetings, music, theatre and painting classes.
