Palazzo Pisani Moretta

The Palace, ever since the propertv of the Pisani familv, was erected in the second half of the XVth Century at one of the most attractive points along the "Canal Grande" half way between the Bridge of Rialto and the Ca' Foscari's vault. Built in the Gothic floreal style, it underwent several expansions and restorations began in the early XVIth Century and flnished in the mid XVIIIth Centurv when the last important works which gave it its present day appearance were completed. The architectural importance of the fašade, is due to the splendid Gothic mullioned windows of the two main floors. The wonderfully elaborate Baroque decoration inside, is the work of the most outstanding Venetian artists of the XVIIIth Century such as Giambattista Tiepolo, Jacopo Guarana, Gaspare Diziani and Giuseppe Angeli.
