Palazzo Venezia

Palazzo Venezia
  • Giorni Feriali

Best remembered today as Mussolini’s Fascist headquarters in Rome, the palace was built in the 1450s as the Rome outpost of the Republic of Venice – hence the name. Piazza Venezia, in front of it, hosted its garden until 1910.

Today, a few of its rooms are home to the city’s museum of decorative arts, with ivories, majolica, Church silver and terracottas, as well as paintings, wood sculptures and bronzes. Another part of the building, instead, has become a public Library, specialized in Art and Archaeology.
