The Tour

Thinking about the splendour of Venice, the 18th c. is surely the period in which the nobility showed its grandeur with amazing palaces and stunning decorations.
Far from the reality – the Venetian Republic was in crisis and the end would be come soon – the nobles continued to emphasize their residences with great art and luxury.
The museum preserves collections of art  attained from different donations or purchases but it is arranged like a house where it is possible to “taste” all its fascinating atmosphere.

Ca’ Rezzonico

It’s one of the biggest palace along the Grand Canal. Built originally for the Bon family by the architect BaldassarreLonghena, then finished one century later by Giorgio Massari for the powerful Rezzonico family, it contains a vast collection of 18th c. pieces, from paintings to chandeliers, from furnishings to wooden sculptures.
A fascinating original pharmacy is also set inside, will all its furniture.

Giambattista Tiepolo

The most famous Venetian painter of his century, Giambattista Tiepolo competed for working not only in Venice but also in the magnificent villas in the Veneto countryside, as well as at the prestigious European courts.

The clear light on his ceilings and the strength of his mytological allegories, perfectly suited with the taste of his era.

Campo S. Barnaba and S. Margherita

Small and lively campo, famous to be the set of some movies, is flanked by a “rio” or canal where every morning a greengrocer, like in the past, sells products directly from his boat.

Crossing the curious Bridge of Fists, one reaches campo Santa Margherita, one of the biggest of the city, wide and lively all day long.

Tailor Made Tours Available

The tour could continue with a walk in the Dorsoduro district, radiant local area, with the presence of art galleries, nice restaurants and wine bars.

For 18th c. art lovers, a visit of the Scuola dei Carmini or the Gesuati church, rich of Giambattista Tiepolo’s works of art.

A relaxing gondola ride could be taken near the museum, to experience the 18th c. life seen in the Canaletto’s paintings.
