Palazzo Mocenigo was built in the 16th century for the Mocenigo family, as a summer residence, in a time when the island of Giudecca was an area of gardens and places to relax. The palace was the favorite summer residence of the doge Alvise Mocenigo.
Between the 17th and 19th centuries, the palace was remodeled, losing many characteristic elements.
Today, the interior is heavily modified, and the palace houses numerous mini-apartments.
Palazzo Mocenigo is a two-storey building, with a long rusticated facade in Istrian stone.
The ground floor has a series of small quadrangular windows, and a small portal in the center. The noble floor (piano nobile) is characterized by eight arched single-light windows, each equipped with a wrought iron railing and a keystone mask on top.
The attic has eight oculi added in the 19th century, corresponding to the windows below. In a central position, on the roof, there is a 19th-century dormer window with three openings.
The southern facade is well preserved and overlooks the private garden of the building.
