Contarini of Bovolo Palace

In this chapter we discuss one of the most particular, evocative and characteristic buildings of the island of Venezia, Contarini of Bovolo Palace.

This elegant 15th-century building of the alleys of the San Marco district, built by the Contarini family, also called "the philosophers", above all for its spiral external staircase. The small court with seven ancient wells frames it beautifully. The Contarini of Bovolo Palace represents a superb taste for decoration and engineering skill.
