Palazzo del Cinema


Palazzo del Cinema di Venezia is the place that hosts the Venice Film Festival and congress activities, located in Lido di Venezia, Venice, Italy. The first cinema exhibition was held on the terrace of the Hotel Excelsior on August 6, 1932. But, with the growing success, it became necessary to build a proper and prestigious venue; this took place between 1936 and 1937, based on a project by the engineer Luigi Quagliata, faithful to the dictates of modernism. There are three theaters in Palazzo del cinema : la Sala Grande with over 1 032 seats, the Zorzi (48 seats) and Pasinetti (119 seats) theatres.
