Palazzo Bembo in the course of “Private Constructions” exhibition.
La Biennale di Venezia, Italy, 2013
1 JUNE – 24 NOVEMBER 2013
Palazzo Bembo is positioned on the Canal Grande, a number of actions away from the Rialto bridge. It was developed by the noble family of Bembo in the fifteenth century. Even though it was transformed several periods above the hundreds of years, externally it even now maintains the first structure. The Palazzo’s purple façade brings together outdated Venetian components with influences from the Byzantine and is deemed an illustration of the Venetian-Byzantine or -Gothic style, a style of architecture originated in 14th century Venice with the confluence of Byzantine designs from Constantinople, Arab influences from Moorish Spain and early Gothic varieties from mainland Italy.
