WELCOME TO VENICE A Capital for ART and for MICROPILES(also an art)
BASILICA of SAN MARCO Built between XI and XV century
Palazzo Pesaro – Papafava The seat of the Venice program is Palazzo Pesaro – Papafava, a historic building which dates back to the 14th century. The palazzo is a typical example of late Venetian-Gothic architecture and was for centuries the home of the noble Pesaro family, whose portrait by Titian can be seen at the Frari Church. In 1625, Pesarina Pesaro married Bonifazio Papafava and the Palazzo passed to the powerful Papafava family that originated from the mainland. For centuries the building was used also for cultural gatherings and even though on your way here it may have seemed to be located out of the way, the Palazzo is centrally located in the Rialto district and therefore a popular spot.

The building was commissioned by the Manin family to show their wealth and their firm allegiance to the Venetian Republic. Built in the mid-1600s on the order of Lodovico Manin I, last of the Venetian Dodges, the majestic Villa and its evocative surroundings are some of the most sumptuous in this noblest of Venetian provinces. In this venture Ludvico used the help of Domenico Rossi, who was inspired by the architectural styles of Andrea Palladio. In 1797 the building was used by Napoleon when he signed the Campoformido treaty which decreed the end of the Republic of Venezia.
