Overview

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.

I just wasn't expecting so much modern art in Venice, Nice collection of Warhol's and that Klimt! Plus there are Chagall's and Kandinsky. All of this amazing art is in an equally amazing 17th century palace. Don't forget to look up and see the paintings...More

Palazzo Pesaro owes its splendor mostly to the Ca´Pesaro-Baldassare Longhena who in 1628 began to built this Baroque palace and Antonio Gaspari completed it in 1710. Today you will find two museums inside - Galleria d`Arte Moderna and the Museo d´Arte Orientale. There is a...More

This place is beautiful. The contrast of the modern art and the Baroque palace is breathtaking. If you like modern art, make this a must see in Venice.

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
