Concierge.com's insider take:
The stunning makeover by architectect Renzo Piano is reason enough to take a look at this former salt warehouse overlooking the Giudecca canal, but lovers of contemporary art may find shows to pique their curiosity, too. Piano's greatest innovation here is a series of tracks and pulleys that allow the immense canvases of 20th-century Italian artist Emilio Vedova to be shown, 10 at a time. The "procession" of these works takes about 20 minutes, followed by a 10-minute break before the next selection starts its journey. The beautifully lit Foundation space has also exhibited works by Anselm Kiefer and Louise Bourgois since its inauguration in 2009.
Opening hours vary according to exhibition.
