Visiting Ca’Rezzonico means to enter into the daily life of an aristocratic family of the XVIIIth century. The magnificent baroque palace that faces the Canal Grande, built by the great architect Baldassare Longhena, has been finely restored and from 1934 is the perfect seat for the Museum of the XVIIIth century in Venice: paintings, richly carved and decorated pieces of furniture, Rosalba Carriera’s precious pastels, are exhibited in the huge and sumptuous ballroom and in the rooms ornated by Giambattista Tiepolo’s frescoes. In the Museum are also kept the only works by Canaletto still in a venetian collection, and the charming series of frescoes painted by Giandomenico Tiepolo for his own country villa in Zianigo.
