#8 |...a trip in Venice: Palazzo Pisani Moretta

This historic Venetian palace, a jewel on the Grand Canal, hosted the special party honoring the film "The Light Between Oceans", whose athmosphere was even more magical thanks to the essences and the lights of YouFirst Pura Rinascita's candles. Built in the second half of the fifteenth century by Bembo, the building became home to a branch of the noble family Pisani, the Pisani Moretta: several expansions and restorations finished in the mid XVIIIth Century when the last important works which gave it its present day appearance were completed. The facade of the building is an example of floral Venetian Gothic style, while the interior is in baroque and neoclassical style and dates back to the XVIII century. Some wonderful works of the most important Venetian artists decorate the halls of the building: Jacopo Guarana's "Light that defeats the darkness" and "Apollo in the morning hours"and Giambattista Tiepolo's "The encounter between Venus and Mars"(1743) . Other works once housed in the palace are today transferred elsewhere, like "The Family of Darius at the feet of Alexander" by Paolo Veronese, and "Dario's death" by Giambattista Piazzetta, now at the National Gallery in London and the Museum of Ca 'Rezzonico in Venice . It has been a real privilege to enjoy this beauty, as the film transports us to another era, filling us with delight and wonder.
