The Museum of Erotic Art (Italian: '''Museo d'Arte Erotica''') was opened in February 2006, situated a few metres from St Mark's Square in Venice, Italy. It was twinned with the Musée de l'Érotisme, in Paris and covered over 700 m² across four floors. The Museum was centred upon the colourful erotic and true history of Venice. The exhibits included various erotic writers associated with Venice, such as Aretino, Franco, Cappello, Baffo, or Casanova, as well as a section of unseen cuts from the films of the Venetian film director, Tinto Brass. The Museum closed in December 2006 after only ten months of operation, its publicity having been banned from all tourist bureaus in Venice and the Veneto region. The Church expressed great satisfaction at its closure, claiming that the Museum was an attack on the "dignity" of Venice.
