- Venezia -
Famous Venetian palace overlooking the Grand Canal owes its name to the fact that, originally, some parts of the facade were covered with gold. The façade is characterized, on the left, by three perforated strips (portico for the mooring of the boats on the ground floor and loggias on the upper floors), and on the right wing, where the masonry covered with fine marble with square openings prevails. The gallery houses the collection of works of art collected by Giorgio Franchetti. Following the donation to the Italian State, in 1916, a collection of bronzes and sculptures was added to the Franchetti collection, as well as numerous Venetian and Flemish paintings.
