Ca’ Pesaro, the most important baroque palace in the city, designed by Baldassare Longhena, has been the seat of Venice City Council’s collection of Modern Art since 1902. The collection was created in 1897 on occasion of the city’s second Art Biennale. The focus of the museum’s collections consists of works that won prizes or were acquired in the early decades of the Biennale. These include famous masterpieces, such as Klimt’s Judith II (Salomè, 1909) and Chagall’s Rabbi of Vitebsk (1922). One of the museum’s strengths is its vast collection of sculptures, including works in wax by Medardo Rosso, donated to the museum by the artist in 1914. Further acquisitions and bequests have endowed the museum with notable works, from Kandinsky to Klee, Matisse to Moore, as well as a rich selection of works by Italian artists and an important cabinet of graphic art. After restoration works in 2002, the exhibition area has been extended further to the second floor. The Oriental Art Museum, on the third floor, which can be visited with the same ticket.

A lovely venue, very interesting modern art collection (not too much- so not mind boggling) and the Hockney Portraits exhibition. It is quite quiet too which is worth mentioning as Venice main drag is so crowded.

We visited the exhibition of David Hockney’s 82 portraits. And it was a visible feast. One of the best exhibitions this year. Ca’ Pesaro makes excellent choices for the exhibitions. Years ago they had Tony Gragg, an exhibition of enormous quality. My compliments for the...More

I loved this building and it was the perfect foil for all the pieces of modern art on show there. For me, Ca' Pesaro and the Peggy Guggenheim Museum were the highlights of Venice. The pictures were very well displayed and spaced out. It felt...More

Excellent 82 portraits and 1 still life exhibition by David Hockney. But the permanent art is well worth seeing and the location of the cafe overlooking the Grand canal is worth the visit alone.

Very interesting exhibition. 82 live portraits using the same chair, all with an explanation of how the sitters fit into David Hockney's life. Extraordinary talent. Highly recommended.

San Polo
The Rialto Bridge is the most famous sight along the
Grand Canal in San Polo, smallest of Venice's six
sestieri (districts) and by far the busiest
neighbourhood. Morning Venetians arrive to peruse the
markets for fish, fruit and vegetables, while shops
display goods from cheese to wine to desserts. San
Silvestro and Rialto Market vaporetto (water taxi)
stops add to the steady stream of foot traffic. San
