The city is in fact littered with works by great painters of the past such as: Carpaccio, Bellini, Tiziano, Tintoretto, Veronese and Tiepolo.

Lastly, there were great contemporary architects such as Scarpa, who were able to combine the classic Venetian style with a more contemporary style. You can see this more modern stye at the Iuav university or the Olivetti Store in Piazza San Marco.
