It is almost totally decorated with polychrome marbles and Istria stone and numerous medallions. The dislocation of the windows alternated with the medallions and the accentuated pendeza due to the failure of the ground make it one of the most beautiful and characteristic to attract the attention of illustrious tar characters whose Monet and D'annunzio. It is considered a cursed palace, not only because it rests on a cemetery, but, above all, for the tragic events that have affected in the cohesive of the century, up to the present day, the various owners.

This pallazzo is often described as one of the most characteristic palaces of Venice and perhaps for this reason was used by Claude Monet as the basis of a series of impressionistic paintings.
