See the rich collection of Venetian paintings up to the 18th century, as well as some splendid examples from the Byzantine and Gothic 14th century to the artists of the Renaissance. Unparalleled works by Bellini, Carpaccio, Giorgione, Veronese, Tintoretto and Titian until Gianbattista Tiepolo are on view, as well as the Vedutisti of the eighteenth century, Canaletto, Guardi, Bellotto, and Longhi.
Visit one of the most beautiful palazzi of the Canal Grande – the rightfully named “house of gold”, or Ca d'Oro.
The ancient patrician 15th century residence is home to the art collection Baron Giorgio Franchetti, which he donated to the Italian state. The palazzo is decorated in the Venetian Gothic style and has been lovingly restored and preserved though the ages, guaranteeing a fascinating architectural experience. Admire paintings of the Venetian school including the famous San Sebastiano by Andrea Mantegna, works of the Tuscan and the Flemish schools, plus wonderful bronze and Renaissance statues. There is also an interesting collection of ceramics recovered from the Venetian lagoon.
