Terna Sinistrorsa proposes to give continuity to a project that for years has brought Politecnico students closer to those that are the most recent and current themes of art and architecture, taking them to Venice Biennale.

This activity is thought for architects, designers but also for engineers; its pourpose is to give a chance to compare the Polytechnic culture, learned during the daily study, with the most important international artistic experiences.


We are going to visit Venice Biennale.

“ The 58th International exposition of art, named “May You live in Interesting Times”. The name was wrongly given to an old chinese curse evoking times of uncertainty, crisis and chaos; “interesting times” refers indeed to the ones we are living ”.

For the same reason if you want to stay in venice please tell us beforehand.

While on the bus we will ask you to sign a pair of papers as requested by Politecnico. The former will be to sign your presence in the trip, the latter is a self-certification that you didn’t participate in more than 5 trips financed by the university. You will be asked your matricola (6-digit student code) and your telephone number.

Getting Ready for the Weather

Prepare yourself for the case of high water in Venice. Anyway, Biennale area is higher than the rest of the city, so the water must be extraordinarily bad so as not to allow the visit of the exhibition venue.

Weather Forecast–>>Venice

Eating in Venice

Venice is known to be an expensive tourist city: get your breakfast in Milan and bring some packet lunch and dinner. In Biennale area there is a bar inside the Gardens but food is kind of expensive. We’ll have to travel for 4 hours in the bus and intermediate stops aren’t in the plans (so avoid drinking too much liquids in the morning).

What to Bring


Packed lunch and dinner, maybe some snack, and water.

Clock: just to avoid being left in Venice.

(Smart)Phone, camera, spare battery: ‘cause playing Ruzzle on the bus is a temptation that leads to lower your battery levels.

Notepad, drawing pencils: real hardened architect.

What else?

Dopo l’iscrizione sarete contattati per il pagamento della quota di partecipazione (possibili modalità: in contanti presso dei banchetti che verranno organizzati, bonifico o PayPal).

After the subscription you will be contacted for the payment (paypal or cash to our stands).
