“When I would recreate myself, I seek the darkest woods, the thickest and most interminable and, to the citizen, most dismal, swamp. I enter a swamp as a sacred place,—a sanctum sanctorum. There is the strength, the marrow, of Nature”.
Henry David Thoreau

How to get there: El Magazen dell'Arte is right in front of an highly-used bus stop of public navigation services in Venice, the “Zattere” (dock for lines 2, 5.1 and 5.2 – from the railway station and San Marco – and line 6 – from Piazzale Roma and the Biennial Gardens).
