PALAZZO TIEPOLO PASSI, VENEZIA

Categories , ,

Palazzo Tiepolo Passi is located in Venice in the San Polo district on the right side of the Grand Canal, between Palazzo Pisani Moretta and Palazzo Tiepoletto.
Built in the mid-16th century, its Lombard-style façade, the designer of which is unknown, is Renaissance; it develops on a central axis, which extends along the four-light window of the two noble floors, starting from the two twin water portals, which indicate that the building was inhabited by two families.
Traces of frescoes attributed to Meldolla, known as Lo Schiavone, are still visible on the façade.
Since the mid-19th century, the palace has belonged to the Passi family.
