Libraries

The heart of the Foundation’s library complex is the Nuova Manica Lunga, the former dormitory of the Benedictine monastery, designed by Giovanni Buora and recently converted by architect Michele De Lucchi into a remarkable space for consulting books and documents, designed according to the latest international library management standards and providing an open, multidisciplinary layout.

The Nuova Manica Lunga is the ideal “piazza”, or meeting place, for the Vittore Branca International Centre for the Study of Italian Culture, a residential centre for humanities studies, where Italian and foreign scholars can stay and spend a period of research in the Fondazione Giorgio Cini libraries.

The Fondazione Cini library’s overall collection includes sections on the history of Venice, literature, music, theatre and opera, and the relations between Venice and the East, and Venice and Europe. The largest and most significant section, however, is art history, consisting of over 150,000 books plus collections of periodical publications with around 800 titles, including over 200 current titles.

The carrels available for scholars to consult the library catalogue also provide access to JSTOR, the large online electronic library of digitised journals. In addition, over 10,000 auction catalogues are available for consultation on open shelves.
