VENICE BIENNALE 2022 TICKETS, PAVILIONS, SIDE EVENTS

Venice Biennale 2022, tickets, pavilions, collateral events, what to see and where to go.
This is it, the Art Biennale, after the 2020 stop due to the pandemic, is about to reopen its doors and is ready to show the new trends of contemporary art.

Every two years, the world’s most important and prestigious international art exhibition presents a theme to reflect on and allows the various nations of the world to describe their point of view on art, the world and creativity, always sparking off a battle between those who claim that the previous Biennale was the best or that this is the best Biennale ever.

This is why you need a guide, or rather a survival kit, to help you find your way around and immediately know where to go and what to see.
