Fontana Palace


Venice: Palazzo Fontana - 30 kB

General remarks:

Date:17th century
Address:Cannaregio 3829
Current use:private
Overview map:locate


In 1693 Carlo Rezzonico, later Pope Clemens XIII, was born in this palazzo. Rather well conserved substance, although subdivided internally and deprived of most of its interior decoration since the 19th century. The outlining of the single floors by dint of horizontal limestone elements is common for façades of that time.
