Overview map:locate


Palazzo Querini Dubois is adjacent to the important gothic Palazzo Bernardo di Canal. It's a sober late 16th century renaissance palace with two noble floors. In the early 18th century, it passed to Marco Giustinan. During the 19th century, the owners changed in short intervals: Francesco Donà, Pietro Maria Dubois, the Bianchini counts and the jewish family Pardo Giorgio. In 1972, the Italian Mail acquired Palazzo Dubois and used it for exhibitions and congresses.
Both piano nobile halls are subdivided; the resulting chambers on the Grand Canal are partially decorated with 19th century frescoes of lower artistic values and stucco applications. However, the remaining terrazzo floors in the 2nd floor hall are nice examples of their kind.
