The Insula of the Carità.
History of a site and its transformations

“Three Insulae in one” : three Insulae once occupied the space of the present day Carità. The 19th century process of transforming communication pathways, following the landfill of the canals and the construction of the first Accademia bridge over the Grand Canal, influenced its present configuration. This process had a strong impact on the entire S. Maria della Carità complex, the current Gallerie dell’Accademia, by changing both means of access and its visual perception: it was no longer a “fortress” in the midst of water, but rather a building completely integrated in the urban fabric.
