In the heart of Venice, a stone's throw from Piazza San Marco, is one of the most interesting cultural complexes in the lagoon city: Palazzo Querini Stampalia, the home of the Foundation of the same name created in 1868 by Count Giovanni, who died the following year without direct heirs.
The Library, Museum and an area for temporary exhibitions are housed there.
The Library is of a general nature and provides around 340,000 volumes for public use, including 32,000 directly accessible in the rooms, which are open according to the Founder's wishes until late at night, including public holidays.
In the museum with its eighteenth century and neoclassical furniture, porcelain, bisque, sculpture, globes and paintings from the 14th to the 20th century, most of which are from the Venetian school, an atmosphere of a noble residence is bestowed by mirrors and lamps of Murano glass and fabrics woven to historical designs. Amongst the works on display are paintings by Giovanni Bellini, Lorenzo di Credi, Jacopo Palma il Vecchio, Bernardo Strozzi, Marco and Sebastiano Ricci, Giambattista Tiepolo, Pietro Longhi, Gabriel Bella and a sketch by Antonio Canova.
From Tuesday to Friday at 11 am guided tours of the museum in Italian, English and French are included in the ticket price.

Fascinating glimpse at the residence of an old Venetian family. The art was great, layout was great, amazing views of Venice and the staff were super friendly and knowledgeable.

Favorite library in Venice. Has both historical halls and modern ones, with comfortable seats and good lighting.

This palace is home to a museum and a library that welcomes those who wish to do some academic research. Some of the art exhibited in the museum are from Venetian and Baroque Rococo.
