Zorzi Bon Palace


Venice: Palazzo Zorzi Bon - 22 kB

General remarks:

Date:13th century ?
Address:Castello 4907
Current use:private
Overview map:locate


The early gothic, large palace is adjacent to Palazzo Zorzi Galeoni on the left. Both palaces' balconies are from the same type and were inserted later. The right water gate with a vaulted sottoportego (not typical for Venice) leads to the Calle del Arco with so-called "case a schiera" housing and a terminating arch. Parts of the central loggia with five arches were bricked up, but interior decoration, perhaps of the early 19th century, is conserved. The façade brickwork has been partly replaced during an early restoration. Noteworthy too: the play of colours of the different capitals.
