An aristocrat's residence.
The Palazzo Rezzonico is now a museum.


Palazzo Rezzonico is a historic noble palace, which was once the residence of the famous poet Browning. The palace was built by Lombard in 1649 and perfectly completed by Giorgio Massari in 1750. It was purchased by the Rezzonico family of Venice in 1712 and eventually sold to Browning in the 19th century. The palace underwent a long restoration process, which began in 1979 and lasted for 7 years, costing 230 billion lire. The restoration brought the palace's frescoes, rooms, and loggias back to their 18th-century splendor. It reopened in June 2001, becoming a popular museum. Palazzo Rezzonico houses many art objects from the 18th century, such as tapestries, lacquer, chairs, and works by famous artists like Canaletto, Carlevarijs, Tiepolo, and Guardi. The palace was redecorated by the municipal authorities in 1935, using furniture, sculptures, curtains, frescoes, and other items from the Correr Museum's collection.
