Palazzo Grassi

This magnificent 18th century palazzo now houses the (highly) contemporary art collection of French businessman, Francois Pinault and also hosts some interesting exhibitions which may be worth checking out.

This classical in style palazzo was designed by Georgio Massari and built between 1748 and 1772, relatively late by Venetian standards. The Grassi family sold the palazzo in 1840 and subsequent notable owners include Gianni Agnelli (from 1983 to 2006), then head of the Fiat Group and it is currently owned by wealthy French businessman Francois Pinault.  They also have a café.
