Fortuny Museum - Ca' Pesaro

Ca' Pesaro

Ca' Pesaro museum in Venice


The palace, built in the fifteenth century, takes its name from its last owner, the catalan artist Mariano Fortuny. Today it is a museum of photography and contemporary and experimental arts.

The Fortuny Museum is located in the ancient gothic palace that once belonged to the Pesaro family. It was later acquired by Mariano Fortuny, who set up his own atelier of photography, set design and painting in the building.

The Fortuny Museum was donated to the Municipality of Venice by the widow of Mariano in 1956. The palace is currently under restoration; however, it’s possible to visit the first and second floors where temporary art exhibitions are held; moreover, research studies are carried out everyday at the palace.
