Palazzo Centani - The Goldoni Home & Museum

Palazzo Centani (the "Casa di Carlo Goldoni"), one of Venice’s most illustrious citizens, was built in the 15th Century and is still a good example of Venetian Gothic architecture of the period. Besides the beautiful triptych façade overlooking the canal, there is an elegant courtyard with an Istria stone staircase and a fine well curb.

During the 16th Century, the Centani family founded a thriving artistic and literary academy. Carlo Alessandro Goldoni, a public notary from Modena, moved there towards the end of the 1600s. His famous grandson, Carlo, was born there on 25 February 1707. Goldoni's family continued to live in this house until 1719.
After various changes in ownership, the building was finally donated to the city in 1931 and became a centre of theatrical studies, with a large collection of Venetian documents and items.

The museum section of Goldoni's old home is now a magical theatrical place: every resource available to contemporary museum design has been used to offer the very best in illustrative and educational opportunities, set in a genuine original setting.
