Away from the madding crowds of Venice is the island of Giudecca and the Casa dei Tre Oci. Near the Zitelle water bus stop, the facade is impressive. The inside is all new and the current exhibit is Fernandino Scianna photos , from his fashion work with Dolce and Gabana to starvation in Yemen. Narration by the artist is also beautiful. Highly recommended. Diana and Winston from Tucson AZ

I went here with friends to see the Ferdinando Scianna exhibition. Both the exhibition and the gallery were excellent. The building is stunning and a beautiful mix of old and new. We took a waterbus here, which was a lovely way to travel over.

We've been very fortunate to visit this gallery several times over the past few years. The building itself is quite lovely and the views from every window is gorgeous. This gallery always shows very interesting work. The latest is a photo exhibition by a very well known Italian female photographer. Astounding work. However, we've never been disappointed by the exhibitions here. Worth a visit and take your time.

This remarkable 1913 building drew us in during December for a temporary exhibition on three floors, devoted to the work of famous French photographer Willy Ronis (1910-2009). The works were beautifully presented in the well-lit rooms with text in English and Italian. Some focused on appealing Venice scenes, while others gave glimpses of post-war Paris. All showed why Ronis is considered to be a master photographer. I especially liked being one of only a few visitors during our 90-minute visit. It was such a peaceful experience compared to being in many of Venice’s overcrowded art venues. Apparently this high-level photography exhibition is typical of what can be expected here, so I plan to return on future visits to Venice. As an architecture buff, I found Casa dei Tre Oci to be of great interest beyond its excellent space for exhibitions showcasing photographs. The renovated brick building with white trim displays a Neo-Gothic exterior and is a real standout at the edge of Giudecca Island. I especially like the three large eye-like windows on the first floor. Its prime location gives stunning views across the water of Venice and St. Marks’s Square. Built by painter/photographer Mario de Maria as a studio/house, the structure is now owned by a foundation that promotes 20th-century art. We reached Casa dei Tre Oci by Vaporetto 2, getting off at the Zitelle stop and then walking for less than 1 minute. An admission fee is charged for exhibitions. We found the staff to be pleasant and helpful and the restrooms clean. There is an elevator. Plenty of places to eat exist nearby.

We went here as my kid is into photography, it was a good decision. We took the Water bus to get here and the place was just opposite the stop. Family ticket was €24 (May 2018). This was a small gallery however there were some amazing photos. This is good if you are into the subject. There was a cafe right next to the gallery with good food at reasonable price too. It was by the canal so we spent sometime there enjoying the weather.
