Architectural restoration of Palazzo Dandolo Paolucci

Palazzo Dandolo was built in the 17th century on the remains of a gothic building. The Palazzo features a rather complex plan, built up around a central courtyard, that contrast with the simple and essential architecture. Palazzo Dandolo Paolucci has a water portal that welcomes you in the majestic columned courtyard that features a wellhead.

Palazzo Dandolo Paolucci has undergone heavy renovations in the following years. In 1924 a large terrace overlooking the Grand Canal was added to the main façade.

The restoration works took place on the top floor of the Palazzo. The main aim was to respect and glorify the original architectural elements. The contrast with the modern furnishing elements and the historic features creates an original and elegant atmosphere.
