Ca' Rezzonico

This white marble palace on the Grand Canal is now dedicated to 18th-century Venice.

Ca' Rezzonico in Venice, Italy

Begun in 1649 by famous Venetian architect Baldassarre Longhena, Ca'Rezzonico remained unfinished for almost a century due to insufficient funds. It was only in 1756, after the Rezzonico family acquired the residence and hired progressive architect Giorgio Massari, that the palace was completed. Now known as the Museum of 18th Century Venice, Ca'Rezzonico is filled with paintings, sculptures, furnishings, a handsome staircase of honor and a spectacular grand ballroom.
