Querini Stampalia Palace

The Querini Stampalia Palace is near St. Mark’s Square and is considered one of the most interesting architectural structures of Venice.
The Museum of Fondazione Querini Stampalia is one of the most important examples of House-Museum, in the heart of Venice, and it is one of the best preserved in all Europe. The noble floor of the Palace recreates the the magnificent residence of the Querini Stampalia family. The ancient collections containing precious furniture, paintings, porcelains, globes, fabrics and sculptures create an inseparable connection in a refined atmosphere, with the luxurious rooms covered with plasters and frescos.
The Foundation is the only institution of the city that contains the entire heritage of this ancient and noble Venetian family. The collections containing precious furniture, paintings of Giovanni Bellini, Pietro Longhi, Giambattista Tiepolo, porcelains, globes, fabrics and sculptures that create an inseparable connection in a refined atmosphere.
Further redevelopments of the residence have been possible thanks to Carlo Scarpa, that had perfectly matched ancient and new elements with different materials.
His work was focused on the bridge, the entrance with the high-water barrier, on the portico and above all the garden, the jewel of the establishment.
The water is his benchmark: from the canal in front of the palace, water flows inside the walls, to coming up on a small tank and canal, surrounded by two carved alabaster and Istria stones labyrinths.
