Venice Palace - Rome

The Venice Palace is located on the square of the same name at the end of the Via del Corso, one of the commercial thoroughfares of Rome. This is one of the oldest Renaissance palaces of the city and it was commissioned by Cardinal Pietro Balbo who became Pope Paul II in 1455. The Palace was used by the Republic of Venice to house its ambassadors. Subsequently it belonged to the Austro-Hungarian Empire and was used by the Great Council of the National Fascist Party before become the museum it is today. It now exhibits paintings from the 13th to the 18th century, marble, wood, bronze and terracotta sculptures, porcelain from China, and other items of decorative arts such as enamels, tapestries and fabrics. The Renaissance detail of its loggias and wall decorations (such as those in the Mappemonde Room) make this museum all the more interesting.
