Palazzo Nani Bernardo was built in 1550 by the architect Andrea Vittoria, on commission of The Bernardo Family.
What is now the building’s main façade – covered entirety by fresco’ s originally formed the side of the building that overlooked the garden, where Ca’ Rezzonico now stands.
Around 200 years ago, the current owner’s ancestors added a new Italian garden to the palace, demolishing a series of houses on the side closest to the Grand Canal in the process and gave the Palazzo Nani Bernardo an entirely new, and harmonious aspect that is still evident today.
Built during the transition period between the Renaissance and Baroque, has a facade with extraordinary compactness and regularity, divided into ground floor, two main floors and an attic. Following the dictates of Venetian architecture, organizes its facade around an axis central distinguished by the presence of two trefoils balconies and the portal to water. To the right and left pairs of lancet windows are developed, so that betray the interior plan is organized around a portego passing, culminating in an atrium with staircase and identifiable as the central axis for the side rooms. The white face is characterized by the presence of two arms up to the second floor.
The building is served by a superb entrance to the Grand Canal and then through a large main staircase that allows access to the two main floors.
Another element is the really valuable back garden, very nice and extraordinarily extended in length, made during the nineteenth century.
The Palazzo Nani Bernardo is situated in a delightful spot along the Grand Canal, opposite the Palazzo Grassi and between Cà Foscari and Cà Rezzonico.
It is within easy reach of Piazzale Roma.
The palace is not far from the Cà Rezzonico water-bus stop.
PALAZZO NANI BERNARDO | VENICE |
Calle Bernardo, Sestiere Dorsoduro, Civico 3197 Venezia (VE) – Italia
The whole palace still exudes the fascination and character formed over the centuries by the taste of those who owned it and the furniture, furnishings and collections they acquired from all over the world and that has imbued its original Venetian style with something quite unique.
The various rooms in the Palace are exactly as they were, and many years of working in hospitality have given us the experience to organise truly exclusive events: cocktail parties, gala dinners, balls, company meetings, wedding banquets tailor-made cookery courses.
All events can be combined with visits to parts of Venice that are off the beaten track; the city’s secret gardens for example provide an amazingly evocative setting for concerts.
