The ancient collections containing precious furniture, paintings, porcelains, globes, fabrics and sculptures create an inseparable connection in a refined atmosphere, with the luxurious rooms covered with plasters and frescos. The House-Museum has been open to visitors since 1869, telling by means of everyday life, traditional and cultural stories that reflect Venice’s lifetyle: a unique city in the world. The Museum is presented as an historic dwelling that maintains its ancient atmosphere but opens its doors to novelties, concerts and exhibitions of classical and modern art.
