Venice Palace 13

Located in the area of Castello, is a building whose monumental face overlooks Rio della Pietà

Located in the area of Castello, is a building whose monumental face overlooks Rio della Pietà, whilst the other two faces constitute, respectively, one of the sides of Corte Bollani and part of one of the wings of the very narrow Calle Bollani; with reference to the other parts, the Palazzo is “wedged” between other buildings, and this is quite in keeping with the Venetian building fabric. Mr. Cicogna discovered, in a Gradenigo Code, that a branch of the Bollani Family, in a year not better specified in the seventeenth century, moved to San Trovaso, where one Antonio Bollani had built “a desirable residence at his own expense”.
