Palazzo Bomben and Caotorta

The institutional headquarters of the Benetton Studi Ricerche Foundation is located in the historic center of Treviso and is made up of the Bomben and Caotorta buildings. Both palaces arise on ancient buildings, dating back to the 14th-15th centuries, partly incorporated in the successive modifications that took place continuously until the mid-20th century. In 1944 the rear part of Palazzo Bomben was hit by a bombing, which led to the subsequent collapse of the roof, the attics and part of the walls. In 1999, when the restoration work began – under the direction of architect Tobia Scarpa – the damage caused during the Second World War was in a certain sense insignificant compared to that due to the serious state of abandonment of both buildings. The complex intervention, completed in 2003, gave new life to the whole. All open spaces have taken the form of a pedestrian-only urban garden. Palazzo Caotorta is in particular the seat of the research, scientific planning, publishing and documentation center work. The renovated spaces of Palazzo Bomben host the public initiatives of a scientific and popular nature organized by the Foundation, and offer the city suitable environments for public cultural moments of various kinds. In addition to the Bomben and Caotorta buildings, the Benetton Studi Ricerche Foundation carries out part of its cultural activities in the church of San Teonisto and Ca' Scarpa, in Treviso, and at the Luisa and Gaetano Cozzi home in Zero Branco (Treviso).
