It was built at about the end of XVI century by the Venier family who lived there until the 1758 when it passed to Contarini di S. Trovaso and then to other owners. It consists of three buildings linked by porticoes.
Inside the salon in the right hand building, il "Mito di Psiche" (the mith of Psiche) dating from XIV century can be seen. In the first and second salon in the left hand building, various episodes of the war of Troy were frescoed. On the walls of the third salon there is Enea who is receiving a message from Mercury, who was separated from Didone, and at the end Calcante who is predicting Eneas future. These are XVII century works by Francesco Ruschi.
