At the estuary of the canal de San
Luca, at the San Toma vaporetto stop, here is the immense and severe looking
PALAZZO GRIMANI, built on the spot of an ancient Byzantine edifice in the
beginning of the 16th century, Renaissance style, work of a Verona architect,
Michele Sammichelli. As usual, it presets a three parts composition with
a small backyard. The façade is decorated with polychrome marble.
Actually the siege of the Appeals Court.
