Palazzo Venezia

The history of the Palazzo Venezia is a testament to economic and political relations that bound the Kingdom of Naples and the status of the Republic of Venice. The Palace was the seat of the Venetian Embassy in Naples and was donated in 1412 by King of Naples Ladislaus II d’Anjou Durazzo to the Republic of Venice to serve as a residence to the consuls-general in Naples. Completely fallen into disrepair after its peak in the 15th and 16th century, Palazzo Venice has undergone several restorations, which witness through the tombstones that have been affixed in the yard by Giuseppe Zono in 1610, Peter sweet in 1646 and Antonio Maria Winners who took charge of its restructuring after the Palace was completely damaged by the earthquake of 1688.
