Ca' Scarpa

Ca' Scarpa, the ancient Church of Santa Maria Nova in Treviso, is an exhibition space and vital center of activity which is embodied, in the orbit of the Fondazione Benetton Studi Ricerche, by the closeness of Carlo and Tobia Scarpa. Restored by Tobia Scarpa and inaugurated at the end of 2020, it is the first to have been recovered among the buildings of an intricate complex that for many years belonged to the Revenue Agency.

The construction that we see today took shape in the second half of the sixteenth century, within a vast sector in which the oldest Benedictine monastery of Ognissanti and that of Santa Maria Nova merge with the church of the same name. All this in the Napoleonic era will follow the fate of the suppression of religious orders, first becoming a military hospital and then a barracks. The church undergoes various functional adaptations with the construction of attics and internal partitions, assuming a configuration that remains so even when, with the Kingdom of Italy, it will lead to a barracks, and will not be scratched by bombs in the First and Second World War . After the war, the project to adapt the complex to the headquarters of the Intendenza di Finanza was born from the destruction and later, in the eighties, the church will be emptied of the nineteenth-twentieth century superstructures, recovered in its original masonry, to house the metal structure on three floors of a new "print warehouse", more functional and stable than the previous one. In 2010, following the transfer of the offices of the Intendenza di Finanza, the space remained abandoned, until the acquisition in 2018 by Edizione Property.

Ca' Scarpa today represents a new piece of the mosaic of places for culture in the historic center of Treviso wanted by Luciano Benetton and is part, together with the Bomben and Caotorta palaces, the church of San Teonisto and the Luisa and Gaetano Cozzi house, of the cultural spaces in which the activity of the Fondazione Benetton Studi Ricerche is articulated.
