The Ca 'Rezzonico

The Ca ‘Rezzonico

The Ca ‘Rezzonico is one of the most famous Venetian buildings and is located in the Dorsoduro neighborhood overlooking the Grand Canal. The construction of this building began in 1667 at the request of the noble Bon family who had commissioned the work of Baldassarre Longhena. Nevertheless in 1682 with the death of Longhena and the economic difficulties of the clients, the construction was abandoned. Only the noble facade with a view to the Grand Canal and the first floor were concluded.

Later, in 1751, Giambattista Rezzonico, part of a family from the Rezzonico village on Lake Como, purchased the building and in 1758 completed the work begun almost a century earlier by the former owners. At the end of the work, a magnificent salon, a staircase with water, a monumental atrium, a huge ballroom had been added and the facade. In 1810, the Rezzonico family was extinguished, over the years the building changed several times of owners and was stripped of its furniture.

In 1935 it was finally released to the city of Venice and now houses the Venice Museum of the ‘700 opened in 1936, where you can find the reconstructions of the rooms with period furniture and paintings by Canaletto, Francesco Guardi, Pietro Longhi, Tintoretto and Tiepolo.
