  • It overlooks the Grand Canal and dates back to the late 1400s: it has a facade just 10 metres wide and looks more Renaissance than Gothic like most other canals.

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.

  • According to local belief, over the owners of this building weighs a curse, according to which they are either bankrupt or violent death. The palace was built in the second half of the 15th century for the merchant Giovanni Dario, who had considerable merit before the Venetian Republic-in 1479, negotiated a peace agreement with Turkey. 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.
