Ca’ Dolfin, Venice, Italy

The Aula Magna Silvio Trentin at Ca’ Dolfin is a large fifteenth-century room located on the first floor of the building. It is a beautiful venue, with decorated ceilings and walls with frescoes of Tiepolo’s legacy, medallions with allegorical figures, Murano chandeliers and mirrors. Ten paintings of Giambattista Tiepolo which used to be in the venue are now at the Hermitage museum in Saint Petersburg, at the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna, and at the Metropolitan Museum in New York. read more here.
