Palazzo Malipiero is located on the Grand Canal in the very
heart of Venice on San Samuele square, one of the most
fascinating and prestigious areas. It stands just across from
Palazzo Grassi Exhibition Center,is well served by public
transport, and is only five minutes' walk from San Marco square.
It is centrally situated, at the crossroads of the city's cultural
and artistic areas. The splendid Italian-style garden
with a view on the Grand Canal makes it even more unique.
Originally built in Byzantine times,
the nine centuries' architectural history of the palace can be retraced
in its complex structure: each generation of owners left its
stamp of caring and fervour for the arts.
But even more fascinating are the historical and human dramas
that took place here throughout the centuries.
For some years as from 1740 Giacomo Casanova
lived in Palazzo Malipiero. In spite of his young age
(he was just 15 years old), he began his successful social life
in these very rooms. Here he gave a broad demonstration of his innate
gift for the art of love.
The present owners have handled the recent restoration
with special care in respecting the palace's historical background.
They have maintained Palazzo Malipiero's ancient splendour and
the traditional prestige, and, in upgrading installations
and equipment to modern standards, improved the great comfort
of its spacious rooms.
