The elegant President’s Reception Room is located on the piano nobile of the Giustinian de’ Vescovi palace, which is on the south side of Ca’ Foscari. One side of this large and well-lit hall, with a Venetian terrazzo floor and a sansovino-style ceiling, overlooks the Gran Canal through a splendid multi-mullioned Gothic window with inverted arches. Antique furnishings and window frames in solid walnut blend with modern style tables and armchairs. An elegant stone staircase supported by archways of successively decreasing height provides access to the Cortile Piccolo, distinguished by the presence of a perfectly preserved well curb. The hall, which once was reserved for receiving the illustrious guests of the Republic of Venice, is the perfect setting for prestigious events such as luncheons, gala dinners, and private parties.
