Palazzo Pisani-Moretta

The palazzo, built around 1460 by the Pisani family, is located in one of the most fascinating parts of the Grand Canal, between the Rialto Bridge and Ca’ Foscari. It is built in a developed Gothic style, and since the 16th century has been subjected to numerous modifications and restorations which brought it to its present appearance after the last important works in the 18th century. The impressive architecture of the facade is due to the splendid Gothic windows of the two main floors. The rich Baroque decoration of the interior is the work of the most important Venetian artists of the 18th century: Giambattista Tiepolo, Jacopo Guarana, Gaspare Diziani and Giuseppe Angeli. The great double-ramped staircase which leads to the top floor also belongs to the Baroque period and was built to replace the old Gothic external staircase.
