Ca' Scarpa, the ancient Church of Santa Maria Nova
in via Canova, is returned to the city of Treviso.
The building, which saw its ecclesiastical functions interrupted with the Napoleonic suppressions, was then used as an archive and in recent decades as a department store in the compendium of the headquarters of the Tax Authority.
Recently acquired by Edizione Property, it was restored between 2019 and 2020 by the will of Luciano Benetton, under the guidance of architect Tobia Scarpa.
It is a new exhibition and cultural space for the city of Treviso and for a large audience, dedicated to the cultural heritage and work of Carlo Scarpa and his son, Tobia.
Not a museum, therefore, but a place of culture that has as its reference the cultural legacy of two figures closely linked to the local history and landscape and the vast international appeal that they represent for both local and international culture.
