• About

    Palazzo Giustinian Recanati is a palace in Venice, located in the Dorsoduro district (sestiere), on Fondamenta delle Zattere al Ponte Longo, overlooking the Giudecca Canal (Canale della Giudecca).

    The palace is located a few meters away from Palazzo Clary.



    Palazzo Giustinian Recanati was built in the 16th century for a branch of the Giustinian family, linked by marriage to the Morosini family.

    In the 17th century, the palace passed to the Recanati family, originally from Badia Polesine, a new member of the Venetian patriciate.

    Today, the well preserved palace still belongs to the descendants of the Giustinian Recanati family.



    Palazzo Giustinian Recanati

    The facade of Palazzo Giustinian Recanati spreads over three floors – a ground floor, a noble floor (piano nobile) and an attic.

    On the ground floor, there is a large portal surmounted by the stone coat of arms of the Giustinian family.

    On the noble floor, there are arched openings accompanied by stone balconies inscribed in rectangular frames.

    Two pairs of single-light windows flank a large central four-light window supported by small Ionic columns.

    The attic, surmounted by a indented cornice, has a series of eight small square windows.

    The rear facade of the palace has Neoclassical lines, due to an 18th-century intervention, probably the work of the architect Antonio Diedo.

    The rear facade of the palace overlooks a small garden on Rio del Ognissanti, from which is separated by a wall. On the wall stands a 19th-century statue representing the Madonna and Child.

    Inside, the building is sumptuously decorated with 18th-century stuccos and antique furnishings.



    Palazzo Giustinian Recanati is located about 1.7 kilometers away from the Santa Lucia railway station. The closest vaporetto stop is Zattere, located about 80 meters away, on the waterbus Lines 2, 5.1, 5.2, 6, 10 and 16.
