H3 Factory

SDPT: Rollup Digitale H3 (EN)

SerenDPT is headquartered at the H3 Factory on the Giudecca island in Venice. The original building was a benedictine church (Saints Cosmas and Damian) founded in the late 1500's. After the convent was disbanded in the early 1800's, the church was turned into a garment factory (Fabbrica Herion) from 1887 to 1987. The City of Venice acquired the former factory space in the early 2000's.

In 2008, the City of Venice restored the complex, bringing the church apses and their XVII century frescos back to life. The restoration created a startup incubator space with 36 modern offices in the Church and the Warehouse (deposito).

In 2017, the City of Venice issued a Request for Proposals (RFP) to manage the incubator.

SerenDPT won the RFP and will operate the space until 2027.
