It is a magnificent example of a Venetian residence directly overlooking the Grand Canal. Known since 1300, the Pisani family was famous for their extensive financial and commercial activities carried out in Venice. The first family residence was in Santa Maria del Giglio but, as the family’s prestige and wealth increased, a new residence overlooking the most important waterway of the island, the Canal Grande, was built to signify the power the family had acquired. This was when, in 1751, Andrea Pisani bought the Palazzetto and turned it one of the most beautiful and elegant buildings in Venice. Today the palace is inhabited by the direct descendants of the Pisani family, the Counts Ferri De Lazara, who have maintained the original style of the era, typical of the Venetian residences of the Serenissima.
