The Palace is a large building of gothic origin; its facades look onto the street (salisazata) San Stae Canal are characterized by their large Serlian windows, a common characteristic in Venetian architecture during the 17th and 18th centuries. It was rebuilt at the beginning of the 17th century, when it attained its present appearance. A large central hall (pòrtego) was used for official functions and goes right through the building, flanked by the other rooms and its interior is typical of all Venetian patrician homes. Frescoes and furnishing in the first piano nobile are in Rococo or Neo-classic style. Many of the rooms are decorated with paintings celebrating the family’s glories.
