CA’ SAGREDO HOTEL
History & Story
This palace was originally owned by the Morosini family and was purchased at the start of the 18th century by the Sagredos, a noble family who had lived in the Santa Sofia district for centuries.
The surname Sagredo is a corrupted form of the world “secret”, as the family was said to be secret advisors to the emperor. They boasted remote Roman origins having been governors of Dalmatia who apparently arrived in Venice in the ninth century. There they joined the Great Council in 1100 as a results of their restoring the city of Sibenik to obedience to the Republic.
The palace was bought by the Procurator of St. Mark Gherardo Sagredo who had it renovated to make it suitable for the social standing of his family. He ordered the architect Andrea Tirali to design a grandiose indoor staircase to replace the long since demolished outdoor Gothic stairway. He had the walls of the new staircase decorated by Pietro Longhi in 1734 with a fresco representing The Fall of the Giants, inspired by Giulio Romano’s Battle of the Giants for the Palazzo del Tè in Mantua.
At the same time, the interior was luxuriously covered by Abbondio Stazio and Carpoforo Mazzetti Tecalla with stucco work, much of which is still in the palace. The same artists also created the decorations in the alcove, an exceptional example of a purely rococo-style bedroom, now preserved at the Metropolitan Museum in New York.
