The Fortuny Palace is situated in the Gothic palazzo Pesaro degli Orfei in Campo San Beneto. The building was transformed by Mariano Fortuny (Granda 1871 - Venice 1949) into his own atelier of photography, set-design, stagecraft, fabric-creation and painting: the rooms and spaces in the building still testify to all these activities, with tapestries and various collections. Four charming floors can be visited, and the museum hosts exhibitions and displays closely connected to the spirit of Fortuny and his eclectic research and experimental interests
Once owned by the Pesaro family, this large Gothic palazzo in Campo San Beneto, was transformed by Mariano Fortuny into his own atelier of photography, stage-design, textile-design and painting. The building retains the rooms and structures created by Fortuny, together with tapestries and collections. The working environment of Mariano Fortuny is represented through precious wall-hangings, paintings, and the famous lamps – all objects that testify to the artist’s inspiration and still give count of his eclectic work and of his presence on the intellectual and artistic scene at the turn of the 19th century.
