Located in one of the most distinctive and photographed neighborhoods of Venice, this beautiful Gothic building stands in front of a beautiful bridge above an intersection of two canals, offering a privileged view over the former Church of Misericordia and the Abbey. The building, with two separate entrances and a private water door on the water for boats spreads over three levels with large and well distributed rooms, that permit the possible division into more units. Although fully restored around 1920, the building still conserves many of the original interior finishes (flooring in venetian "terrazzo" style, wooden decorations, probably of the Brustolon school, stone decorations of the capitals) that make it a fine and charming dwelling. The intensity of the light filtering through the windows with cathedral glasses, the reflections of the sourrounding water and the tranquility of the large garden in the front make this property a perfect and exclusive dwelling in a beautiful area of Venice.
Cannaregio is the northernmost of the six historic sestieri (districts) of Venice. It is the second largest sestiere by land area and the largest by population. The Cannaregio Canal, which was the main route into the city until the construction of a railway link to the mainland, gave the district its name (Canal Regio is Italian for Royal Canal). Development began in the eleventh century as the area was drained and parallel canals were dredged. Although elegant palazzos were built facing the Grand Canal, the area grew primarily with working class housing and manufacturing. Beginning in 1516, Jews were restricted to living in the Venetian Ghetto. It was enclosed by guarded gates and no one was allowed to leave from sunset to dawn. However, Jews held successful positions in the city such as merchants, physicians, money lenders, and other trades. Restrictions on daily Jewish life continued for more than 270 years, until Napoleon Bonaparte conquered the Venetian Republic in 1797. He removed the gates and gave all residents the freedom to live where they chose.
