The Biennale is probably the most famous event occurring in Venice. As always, the attention of professionals and aficionados will point towards the old Maritime Republic for the 14th Biennale of Architecture taking place at the Arsenal and in the Biennale Gardens for 6 months, from the 7 June to the 23 November.
There will also be the Biennales of Contemporary dancing, Music and Cinema at the same time. They have been integrated this year to the Architecture Exhibition, named “Fundamentals”, on the wish of Rem Koolhaas, the Dutch director of the event.
As usually, countries of the whole world will be participating, 66 in this case, each with its own pavilion and with 10 of them attending for the first time the Biennale. This year, the national pavilions will be involved in the theme chosen by Koolhaas, “Absorbing Modernity 1914-2014”, which is an innovation.
