Eighteenth-century palace overlooking the Grand Canal in Venice, city among the most visited by tourists from around the world
The property called “Donà Balbi” Palace is made up of three communicating areas with autonomous entrances from Riva di Biasio and from Calle Sagredo, with a main front on the Canal Grande of Venice.
“Donà Balbi” Palace is made up of three zones that are different for their height and dimensions, connected between themselves and with autonomous entrances from Riva di Biasio and Calle Sagredo.
The central nucleus of the real estate complex that can be considered as a typical Venetian residence, developed on four levels above the ground which was built presumably at the beginning of 1700 is peculiar for its architectural value, for its paintings, its polychrome sculptures, covered walls, iconographies and Venetian decorated floors. The ground floor of this part of the Palace is mainly to be used as archive while the higher levels and the other parts are for office use. The connection between the levels is guaranteed, as well as by the stairway in natural stone also with the presence of lifts. The property at half of the 1980s was subject to a complete restoration and conservation concluded at the beginning of 1990, and more recently new interventions to be used as a security profile, fire prevention and plumbing implant.
