Morolin Michiel Olivo Palace


Venice: Palazzo Morolin Michiel Olivo - 31 kB

General remarks:

Date:late 15th century
Address:San Polo 2672
Current use:private
Overview map:locate


The remarkable façade of this palazzo is oriented towards the Rio di San Polo. While the wings have still windows of sixth order without frames but with two large tondi, the four-light portego loggia with round arches is already of a Renaissance style. Especially note the balcony of the lateral window, which is one of the finest examples of its kind in Venice. The middle part of the façade is slightly higher than the lateral parts. Towards the Calle Morolin, a three-arch loggia of fourth order delimits the rear courtyard.
