Palazzo Mocenigo

This sixth-century building is special, as despite being turned into a museum, it maintains the atmosphere of a real house of a noble family. There are many artworks housed in this palace, the majority dating back to the eighteenth century.

Palazzo Mocenigo (Mocenigo Palace) was the urban residence of the noble Mocenigo (18th century) family. Its last descendant Alvise Niccolò Mocenigo passed the Palace into the hands of the Municipality. He wanted all of his archives and furniture to become an art exhibition.

Today the palace is open to visitors and it's been kept intact throughout the years. The museum is particularly interesting for people who are curious about the history of the most precious Venetian hand–tied cloths, elegant examples of the Venetian artistic tradition, which reveal the extraordinary ability of lace-workers and dressmakers at the time of the Serenissima.
