Architectural Notes

The main façade on the Barcaroli canal is of important artistic value and is an excellent example of the Gothic Fiorito style, the highest architectural point of the Gothic period developed in Venice.

The main façade of the property is made up of two different buildings: the smaller building has a ground floor, a mezzanine and a main floor, while the much larger main building has a ground floor, a mezzanine, two piano nobile floors, a third floor and loft. There is continuity between the two façades, the second being of course more impressive.

The palace boasts two water gates, two stunning Quadrifora (four-mullioned windows), single-mullioned windows on both sides and a small but beautiful Trifora (three-light window) on the mezzanine floor.

All window openings have pointed arches, decorated with gothic fleurons at the top, rectangular cornices and, with the exception of the mansarda, all have balconies.

Of particular beauty are the string-course frames, the twisted edges on both sides of the second building, the decorative frames and the three bas-reliefs of Pietra d’Istria, dating from the last quarter of the XV century but placed here in later times and positioned between the pairs of single light windows of the first floor of both buildings.

The palazzo today incorporates a more recent section which harmonizes with the historical palace and creates two courtyards, the wider one facing the canal.
