  Palazzo Cavalli Franchetti
by Cristian_Uluru

Palazzo Cavalli Franchetti is now the home of the Veneto Institute for Sciences, Letters and Arts. The building has got a very long history with various owners. Some parts of the palace were made by Archduke Frederick of Austria, and the Count of Chambord. Later, the seal was set on the alterations to the palace by Camillo Boito (1836-1914), who also produced a masterpiece in the monumental stairway, justly admired to this day. Passing in 1922 from Sarah Luisa de Rotschild (Baron Raimondo Franchetti’s widow) to Medio Credito delle Venezie, the palace now belonging to the Veneto Institute.
