About our home


This is the attic of a 16th century palace, just opposite the Canal Grande, and a direct view of the Rialto Bridge and the canal.

It is a small apartment of 50 sqm, a bedroom, small kitchen, bathroom and living room.

In the parts of the living room where the ceiling height is minor, I have installed tatami mats and futons, which are used on occasions, very frequent, one or more friends join us.

This attic is what remains of a family Palazzo, divided from generation to generation. I decorated it with a lot of passion for Venetian craftsmanship, but also with a little oriental taste - which fits well with the history of venice.

A curiosity: the restructuring was one of the last works of the studio of Carlo Scarpa, Venetian modernist architect much admired in Italy. We see lots of traces of modernism in the details.

The position is extremely central, 5 minutes from San Marco and on the pier facing the markets and the Aperitivi of Rialto.

Lift // 30 meters away Taxis, vaporetto, and airport boat.
