  • Built around the years 1455-1467 commissioned by the Venetian Cardinal Pietro Barbo who later became Pope Paul II. It was gradually used as a papal residence, as the Embassy of the Republic of Venice, as the residence of the head of Government during the Fascist period. Today, few people know this is a Museum and can be visited. I, not knowing this in advance, I just went back to check from the outside. Next time I will ascend the staircase leading to the upper floors.-

Palazzo Venezia was a discovery, stately salons, empty of furniture but beautiful, I'll also voids of visitors, there were 7/8 people, on Sunday, mah! It is worth also for collection of works on display in the less representation.
