In Italy there are about 4,526 museums and art galleries that are not directly run by the state. Veneto hosts about 7.2% of these.
Overall revenue from ticket sales in Veneto for admission to non-stated-owned museums and art galleries account for 22.7% of the national total. Of its 14 art galleries, 11 are state-run, 10 are in the province of Venezia, and 6 of these are in Venezia itself.
The most obvious phenomenon of recent years, from 2005 to 2009, is that of the progressive aggregation of Veneto libraries into "networks of cooperation". By April 2009, 69.7% of the municipalities had at least one library belonging to a network of cooperation, a 7.8% increase on two years ago.
Approximately 3,791 buildings or structures in the region have Veneto-villa status; about 10% of these are state-owned villas. Around 300 villas are open to the public; 25 of them offer educational services for schools.
More than 3 million spectators attended the theatre and music concerts-classical, pop and jazz-in Veneto in 2007.
