Palazzo Miani Coletti Giusti

Palazzo Miani Coletti Giusti (often simply called Palazzo Giusti ) is a palace in Venice in the Italian region of Veneto . It is located in the Cannaregio sestiere overlooking the Grand Canal between the Ca 'd'Oro and the Palazzo Fontana Rezzonico .


The palace was built in 1766, as indicated on the facade. He changed hands several times, from the Mianis to the Colettis to the Giustis . The Galeria Franchetti is housed there together with the Ca 'd'Oro .


The palace, the work of Antonio Visentini , has a linear, greenish facade over four floors. Special features are the four portals to the water, which are surrounded by half-columns in the Doric style and separated by three niches with statues of well-known men. Numerous individual windows surround the typical multiple windows on the main floors (even if the close rhythm of the composition subsides, as does the distance between the central individual windows so that they look like a single multiple window ), a particularly pronounced eaves with a basket arch in the middle, an imposing dormer and two terraces balustered with columns . There are various allusions to the style that Andrea Palladio promoted on the complex . On the second main floor there are two round niches with figures in them and triangular tympanums above .
