Venice Wedding Hall
The historical Palazzo of the Venice Wedding Hall called Palazzo Cavalli, stands in one of the most picturesque areas of Venice, overlooking the Grand Canal close to the Rialto Bridge. It is a three-floor, XVI century Renaissance building whose façade is characterized by a sequence of stone corbels above the base, which support the two main floors with their four- and one-mullioned windows.
The building takes its name from the aristocratic family who lived there; it was also the residence of the American novelist James Fenimore Cooper and of the art scholar Aldo Ravà who furnished the Palazzo in the typical, XVIII century Venetian style, with original paintings, furniture and ceramics. Inside, a series of elegantly furnished rooms are devoted to the bride and groom.
The largest room is full of light, with large windows overlooking the Grand Canal taking up one whole wall and providing a definitely unique panorama over Venice. In tyhis room, you can also admire an impressive painting entitled “The Golden Wedding” dating from 1909. The painting, an oil on canvas measuring 120 cm. by 207 cm., is a work by the famous Venetian artist Luigi Nono (1850-1918).
