Overview map:locate


Although the asymmetrical main façade of this palazzo is on the Canal Grande, another broad façade with a central serliana looks over the Rio di San Moisè. Generally, the building is attributed to Bortolo Manopola and was, according to recent scholarship, re-modeled by Michele Sumachi (Soummakis), a greek speculant. It bases partially on the so-called "Ca'Grande dei Barozzi", which was one of the most important pre-gothic palaces in Venice. Ionic, maneritstic colums are to be found in the first piano nobile serliana. The building on the left of the palace also belongs to the complex. It was built in the 19th century by the jewish family Treves, who also commissioned the neoclassical interior decoration and still inhabit the building. Two sculptures by Antonio Canova have a dedicated room in the mezzanine.
