Morosini a San Giovanni Grisostomo Palace


General remarks:

Date:14th, early 15th century
Address:Cannaregio 5829
Current use:private
Overview map:locate


This palazzo is also called 'Casa di Marco Polo', which ist not correct. The Rio façade still has some of the typical stone crosses from the byzantine epoch. The court façade towards the Corte del Milion shows traces of alterations, especially concerning the floor plan. Nevertheless there are still some interesting byzantine and early gothic arches.
The corte Morosini, which also belongs to the building, has an open brick stairway, which is presumably reconstructed.
