Gussoni Grimani Palace


Venice: Palazzo Gussoni Grimani - 27 kB

General remarks:

Architect:Michele Sanmicheli
Address:Cannaregio 2277
Current use:Veneto region offices
Overview map:locate


The last restoration uncovered remnants of exterior frescoes, which endured below the of the windows' parapets. Beside Michele Sanmichelis façade with segment gables above the piano nobile windows, especially the façade towards the adjacent rio on the right is interesting, as it is one of the few examples of a consciously designed long side of a venetian palace. The water portal perhaps served as a model for the solution of Palazzo Mocenigo Casa Vecchia.
Interior decoration is partially conserved.
