|Date:||late 15th century|
|Current use:||Associazione Scientifica Palazzo Cappello|
The palace, probably dating from the second half of the 15th century, has two courtyards. Both wings are extended to three window axis, some of them are bricked. The portego has a three-arch loggia towards the courtyard. Only arches of fifth order are used, also in the mezzanine.
On Gentile Bellini's well-known painting of a "Particle of the Holy Cross being recovered at San Lorenzo" (today in the Accademia), the palace is shown with gothic exterior frescoes (called "regalzier") on the long side. Except some tiny remains, these decorations are lost.
