Palace Loredan campo Santo Stefano

The Istituto Veneto di Scienze, Lettere ed Arti (IVSLA) stems from the Reale Istituto Nazionale, created by Napoleon for the Kingdom of Italy in 1810. The current name was given in 1838 by Ferdinand I, Emperor of Austria, when Venetia was under Austrian Government. In 1866, after the annexation of Venetia to Kingdom of Italy, the Istituto Veneto di Scienze, Lettere ed Arti was recognized as one of the most prestigious Italian Academies. Since 1838, the activity of Istituto Veneto di Scienze, Lettere ed Arti run uninterruptedly till nowadays.

The first seat of the IVSLA was Palazzo Ducale then it transferred, in 1893, to Palazzo Loredan. In 1999 it was bought Palazzo Franchetti, and it inaugurated in 2004.

Structure[edit]

The Institute accounts for 290 fellows, divided in two Classes (Class of Sciences and Class of Humanities); each Class is made of fellows (soci effettivi), corresponding fellows (soci corrispondenti), foreign fellows (soci stranieri) and honorary fellows (soci onorari). Fellows are formally appointed by the Ministry of Cultural Affaires after being elected by the Assembly of the soci effettivi.
