This patrician palace - now the Museum of Modern Art - is the work of architect Baldassare Longhena and also a wonderful example of Venetian baroque.
The Duchess Felicita Bevilacqua La Massa donated the Palazzo to the city in 1889, having previously set up a foundation to promote Venetian artists by exhibitions.
Around the turn of the century Venice made it a gallery of modern art. It shows paintings from the 19th and 20th century, including works by Max Klinger, Auguste Rodin, Max Liebermann, Marc Chagall and Gustav Klimt.
The Ca 'Pesaro is also home to the Museum of Oriental Art, showing oriental art objects. It is the largest collection of its kind in Europe.
