Summary: In 1926 Carlo Scarpa completed his studies at the Fine Arts Academy in Venice, where the first masters program in Architecture had been launched two years earlier. Naturally his name was not among those of the first seven architects who took the registration examination to qualify for professional practice in 1928. For this reason, about thirty years later, in 1957, while the Gipsoteca Canoviana of Possagno was being completed, Scarpa was sued for unlicensed practice. While his educational background was the cause of one of the saddest episodes of his career, the years spent at the Academy did make a constant mark on his work, which is especially perceptible in his efforts starting in 1940 to renovate the Gallerie dellAccademia in Venice and the Gipsoteca in Possagno.
