Galleria Franchetti at Ca' d'Oro palace
Ca’ d’Oro museum, also known as Galleria Franchetti at Ca’ d’Oro, is an art museum displaying mostly pieces of art from the private collection of Baron Franchetti, who had bought Ca’ d’Oro palace in 1894, restored it and left it to the State at his death.
Beside masterpieces of Italian painting, such as famous works by Mantegna, Carpaccio, Guardi and Titian, Ca’ d’Oro museum is well worth a visit for its amazing location: the famous XV century palace on the Grand Canal, one of the most important examples of Venetian Gothic style. Franchetti’s restoration helped to preserve the original features of the building; in particular, the mosaics pavement in the courtyard desinged by Franchetti pays homage to Venetian mosaic tradition in Ca d’Oro museum.
