|Date:||late 14th century ?|
|Address:||Cannaregio 3935, 3936|
The palace with an a-typical L-type plan and a garden towards the Grand Canal and the Ca'd'Oro seems to be partially reconstructed or at least much restored. Segment-arch windows are extensively used, which is quite a-typical. Thin columns support the arches of 5th order of the façade loggia. A small tower containing a staircase at the rear wing was destroyed during the restoration in the late 1960s when the Istituto del Mediocredito acquired the building. Only few remains of the interior decoration; albeit the modern remodelling of the large 19th century staircase behind the portego constitutes a respectable effort of the planners.
Currently, Palazzo Giustinian Ravà (as it is also called) is for sale.
