This renaissance palace was once property of Gabriele Vendramin, known for his picture collection. It shows a deep plan, the strange and altered rear façade is towards the rio del Trapolin.

April 2005: The unsatisfying restoration of the façade has been completed; no work in terms of conservation has been done for the portal.
