Corporate and Private Events
With its lovely courtyards and outdoor spaces, the monumental complex offers spectacular natural and architectural staging for cocktails and receptions, corporate and promotional events, and gala dinners, especially during the spring and summer months. The splendid Basaglia terrace offers a breathtaking view of Saint Mark's Basin, providing a one-of-a-kind backdrop for any event. The roomy Grecale Hall boasts large windows with views of the lagoon and the large lawn, and can receive up to 400 people. For smaller gatherings, the Basaglia Hall looks onto the 17th-century church on one side and Saint Mark's Basin on the other, and is an ideal locale for coffee breaks, working lunches and informal meetings.
