The Big Cortile
Inside a Venetian palace, hidden from the public, there are the two internal courtyards, interconnected by a ‘sotoportego’ (portico).
The surface area of the Cortile Grande is 900 m² and it is the largest private courtyard in Venice.
The recently restored, unfolds to reveal the grand court.
The charming Cortile Piccolo, brick-paved in fish bone style, contains one of the best-preserved well curbs in Venice. It is embellished with sculpture elements such as acanthus and flowers.
The chromatic contrast between brickwork and stone is repeated in the elegant stairway with steps in stone that lead up to the “piano nobile”.
In the summer season, these courtyards are used for a variety of cultural and musical events, perfect for alternative wedding receptions and gala dinners.
