Ca' Cornaro (later Martinengo, then Ravą)

Grand Canal, Fondamenta dei Carbon, S. Luca Parish (S. Marco)

The palace now known as CA' CORNARO-MARTINENGO, or sometimes Ca' Cornaro-Ravą, was built in the 16th century. Above the ground floor the structure cantilevers out over the fondamenta. Umberto Franzoi observes, "Undifferentiated height and detail on both piano nobile storeys suggest design for shared occupancy or property to be rented out, a single scale module corresponding to identity of commercial and social standing" (Palaces and Churches on the Grand Canal in Venice, p. 115).
