For an exhibit focused on the music and life of composer Antonio Vivaldi, the orphanage and church where he worked still exists today.

The museum, Piccolo Museo della Pieta 'Antonio Vivaldi', chronicles the history of the Ospedale della Pieta, the orphanage where Vivaldi worked from 1703 to 1740 as the chorus master and violin teacher to the orphans. Here, he composed much of his music for the church orchestra. The museum displays original documents and the musical instruments used by the women of the choir, the students of the orphanage, and by Vivaldi himself.
