Giorgio Franchetti Gallery at the Ca' d'Oro

Giorgio Franchetti Gallery at the Ca' d'Oro

The Giorgio Franchetti Gallery at the Ca' d'Oro is housed in one of the most prestigious late Gothic palaces in Venice.

The important art collection occupies two floors of the building.

It belonged to Baron Giorgio Franchetti (1865-1927), in 1916 he donated his collections and the building itself to the Italian State, after having restored its original splendor with extensive restorations. The nobleman's collection, including furniture, paintings, medals, tapestries, small bronzes and sculptures , was expanded over the years with the addition of Renaissance works from suppressed or demolished religious buildings and collections from the Accademia Galleries and the Museum Archaeological.

The visit of the Giorgio Franchetti Gallery at the Ca' d'Oro does not end at the Gallery alone, opened to the public in 1927, which still preserves, as a whole, the structure of the ancient Venetian warehouse. Of particular interest is the internal courtyard, with the suggestive floor mosaic in ancient marble , created by the baron himself to evoke the early Christian basilicas, and the original well curb sculpted by Bartolomeo Bon in 1427. In the atrium – an ideal custody of the building and its fate – the ashes of Giorgio Franchetti rest under a porphyry stone.

In the two-year period 2023-2024, the Gallery underwent a general restyling and exhibition update, for this reason the first floor is closed to the public. The current visit itinerary winds through the monumental courtyard, loggia and rooms on the second floor.
