15° Biennale Architettura Venice 2016 - Reporting From The Front da angelo aldo filippin

San Stae  (San Eustachio)

Canal Grande 

The Venetians typically abbreviate the name of this church dedicated to St. Eustace to “Stae”. So today, because of its good acoustics, the church is used for concerts, and if got lucky you might find contemporary art exhibitions since the church of San Stae is a site of the Biennale.
