Valmarana Cini Palace


Venice: Palazzo Valmarana Cini - 25 kB

General remarks:

Date:16th century
Address:Dorsoduro 864
Current use:Fondazione Cini - museum
Overview map:locate


The composition of the central serliana with colossal pilasters is evocative of Michele Sanmicheli's Palazzo Grimani a San Luca, but is much more sober. As a whole, the palace is based upon the classical tripartite scheme of venetian palaces. Interior decroration is partially conserved.
The Collezione Vittorio Cini, a gallery with focus on tuscan paintings - Piero della Francesca and Botticelli - is housed in the palace.
