Overview map:locate


The palace in the San Giovanni Grisostomo parish near the Rialto has a symmetrical façade, but due to the form of the building area a symmetrical tripartite floor plan could have been implemented. A portego is situated behind the central round arch and two lateral windows with gables on the right; the staircase is located in the left wing. The end-to-end balcony is a common stylistic element in the late venetian architecture. In the 19th century, it was property of Isacco Pesaro Maurogonato, a former minister of Daniele Manin.
