Ca’ d’Oro

(39) 041 52-85-324

The National Museum of the Ca’ d’Oro (Galleria Giorgio Franchetti alla Ca' d'Oro) sits along the Grand Canal in Venice and is one of the most prestigious late gothic palaces in the city. The Ca’ d’Oro currently belongs to the Italian Ministry of Culture and contains the important art collection of the Baron Giorgio Franchetti, who donated his collections and the building itself to the Italian State in 1916 after restoring the palazzo to its original magnificence. The inner courtyard is a highlight of a visit here with its impressive floor marked by the ancient marbles’ mosaic (made by the Baron himself to reflect the early Christian Cathedrals), as well as the original well curb sculpted by Bartolomeo Bon in 1427.

Venetian Heritage, in collaboration with the Italian Ministry of Culture, created a new exhibition in the museum, "From Donatello to Vittoria, 1450-1600," which launched in April 2022 and features 150 years of sculpture in the Venetian Republic.
