Il Palazzo Enciclopedico / The Encyclopedic Palace, a work by Italian-American artist Marino Aurti, is the centerpiece of the 55th International Art Exhibition of la Biennale di Venezia, 1 June to 24 November 2013. It represents the dream of bringing together all the knowledge of the world in one gigantic museum, perhaps inspired by the potential of the Internet to aggregate information.
This year there are over 150 artists from 37 countries including Egypt, France, Greece, Israel, Italy, and Turkey. There is national participation from: Bosnia & Herzegovina, Croatia, Republic of Cyprus, Egypt, France, Greece, Italy, Lebanon, Montenegro, Spain, Syrian Arab Republic, and Turkey.
