Palazzo Malipiero, Venice

Palazzo Malipiero is a palace in Venice, Italy. It is located on the Grand Canal in the central Campo San Samuele. It stands just across from Palazzo Grassi Exhibition Center. The adjacent Italian-style garden with a view on the Grand Canal, a rarity in Venice, makes it even more distinctive. Initially built in a Byzantine style, over the centuries it has undergone some modifications.HistoryThe Ca' Grande of Saint Samuel was probably built at the beginning of the 11th century by Soranzo family, which also built in that period, together with the Boldù family, the church of San Samuele facing the land-facade of the Palace. In the 13th century a third floor was added.In the early days of the 15th century the Cappello family, one of the most energetic and industrious families of Venice, became owners of the Palace as a result of marriages with the Soranzos. The Cappello family used the palace's storehouses to house the newly discovered printing and publishing activity. In the mid-16th century this family enlarged the building and modified the Grand Canal facade to its present shape.Around 1590 the Malipiero family became tenants of the Cappellos and Caterino Malipiero, within few years as from 1610, through the marriage with Elisabetta Cappello and further purchases, became owners of the whole edifice. Evidence of the very many restorations done by him are the date 1622 and the initials K.M. - for Caterino Malipiero- in an engraving placed over on the main door he built, giving access to the new large entrance of the Palace.

  • Beautiful palace accessed by crossing a private bridge that allows you to cross Rio di Santa Maria Formosa, in the Camp of Santa Maria Formosa, Sestiere di Castello. It was the home of the Malipiero family until the end of '400, when it passed, by marriage, to the Trevisan family and, probably, at that time it was also rebuilt in the current forms; symmetrical facade with Istria stone roof and Renaissance style. Developed on three floors, it has, in the center, on the ground floor, two portals in full six that correspond, in the two noble floors, to four-proeres with sculpted parapets and, on the sides, two monophores in full sixth; to decorate the whole niches and patere, cartouches and, just under the cornice, eight cameos. Today it has been dismembered in several apartments, while the top floor noble (the second floor) houses a hotel, where you can still observe 18th-century frescoes in good condition.

  • Palace dating back to the 15th century, the golden age of expanding trade with the East, in which the Venetians had supremacy. is in good condition. Mixture of Byzantine style with Gothic. Point out the perfect symmetry of the Windows and balconies, typical of that era. Is situated in the Campo di Santa Maria Formosa and your access is made by a private bridge in stone. I don't know if it's possible visit.
