A palazzo whose extraordinary architectural and spatial quality have made it a renowned "temple" of the Venetian Settecento. English edition.
“The quality of many of the works exhibited, as well as the extraordinary quality of the architecture and the spaces, have made Ca’ Rezzonico the renowned, refined temple of that Venetian Settecento that was the age of splendor, squandering and hardship, but undoubtedly one of the most splendid, loftiest artistic periods of modern Europe.”
Completely restored, the building now hosts important exhibitions and the Museum of the Venetian 1700s.
The guide illustrates the many rooms with their precious period furnishings, where visitors can admire paintings by Longhi and Canaletto, and some of the most important frescoes by Giambattista Tiepolo, like the Nuptial Allegory and the Allegory of Merit accompanied by Nobility and Virtue.
An overall plan and the room plans placed at the beginning of the descriptions of each space facilitate visualization of the layout and location of the works.
