It is considered one of the most important examples of Venetian Baroque between the eventeenth and eighteenth centuries. The palace was designed by Antonio Gaspari, one
of Longhena’s students, for the Zenobio family. The family became part of the new nobility following the purchase of the title of Patrizi. Together with the island of San Lazzaro, it hosts the Armenian College.

The restoration involved the hall of mirrors. It was aimed at preserving the fresco and dry decorations of the ceiling, attributed to Jean Louis Dorigny. All parts at risk of falling
were placed in safety. The areas were then consolidated and dry-cleaned, or cleaned with the help of liquid or gel solutions. In the end, the lacunose areas have been integrated with the stages of plastering and pictorial retouching to restore readability to the work.
