This is the important second piano nobile property of the Palazzo Mocenigo Ca' Vecchia.
The palazzo was named "Ca' Vecchia" because it was the residence of the older, main branch of the Mocenigo family. Elements in the interior courtyard testify to the 15th century Gothic origins of the palazzo. It was completely rebuilt and the facade renewed to a design by Francesco Contin around 1625.
Unusually, the two piano nobili are equal in height and have the same architectural layout. The arches are decorated by carved marble heads at their keystones. No trace remains of the frescoes painted on the facade by Benedetto Caliari.
The importance of the family meant that the palace saw many famous guests over the years such as Giordano Bruno (a heretical monk persecuted by the Catholic Church) and Emanuele Filiberto of Savoy. The poet Thomas Moore stayed here for a short while and Lord Byron rented the palazzo in 1818 and stayed for a long period.
The property is now in an unrestored state and can be purchased as is or with a complete refurbishment project in place. When the property has been restored to the highest level as is planned it will represent on of the most important and beautiful properties on the Grand Canal in a wonderful location.
The property has access to a beautiful if wild palazzo garden, as well as having an elegant communal androne entrance and private water gate.
Second piano nobile 470 sq.m.
