Currently, the palace is being restored by the Waldensian church. The piano nobile has remnants of neoclassical frescoes by Carlo Bevilacqua. While the wall paintings are in a good state, one ceiling fresco is only partially conserved. The portego ceiling shows beams "alla sansoviniana". Horizontal subdivisions were made in lateral rooms of minor importance.
An austrian bomb damaged the foundations when it dropped into the rio during the first world war.
