Venice, Italy
3.8 / 5
The official name of the building is the palace of St. Sophia. The building was built in the XV century. Architects Bartolomeo and Giovanni Bona commissioned one of the most powerful Venetian families. Gold leaf was used for exterior decoration, but to this day it has not been preserved. At the end of the XIX century, the mansion was acquired by Baron Giorgio Franchetti. The aristocrat collected a large collection of paintings, which together with the house went to the state after his death.
