Ca’ Pesaro – International Gallery of Modern Art and Oriental Art Museum

Ca’ Pesaro is a Baroque marble palace facing the Grand Canal of Venice.

Originally designed by Baldassarre Longhena in the mid-17th century (1659), the construction was completed by Gian Antonio Gaspari in 1710.

Today it is one of the 11 museums run by the Fondazione Musei Civici di Venezia system.

Inside of the palace, you can see some of the fresco and oil decorations on the ceilings, the work of artists such as Bambini, Pittoni, Crosato, Trevisani and Brusaferro.

There was also a ceiling by G.B. Tiepolo, with Zephyrus and Flora, which was transferred to the Museum of Ca’ Rezzonico in 1935.

Nowadays Ca’ Pesaro houses 19th and 20th century collections of paintings and sculptures, as well as a section on graphic art.

Address: Santa Croce 2076, 30135 Venice
