The Ca’ d'Oro, an ancient patrician residence of the fifteenth-century, gethers the art collection which Baron Giorgio Franchetti, who bought the building in 1894, gave the State. In this house, decorated with a Venetian Gothic style, through fascinating architectonical glimpses, it is possible to admire paintings of the Venetian school among which the famous San Sebastiano by Andrea Mantegna, works of the Tuscan and the Flemish school, wonderful bronze statues and Renaissance statues as well. At Ca’ Duodo, the palace next to the Ca’ d'Oro, there is an interesting collection of ceramics found in the Venetian lagoon.
