Overview
More
Situated in the Gothic palazzo Pesaro degli Orfei in Campo San Beneto; the building was transformed by Mariano Fortuny into his own photography, set-design, stagecraft, fabric-creation and painting atelier: the building still testify to all of these activities, with various art and tapestries collections. The museum also hosts temporary art exhibitions, all of which closely connected to the spirit of its founder.

The palace that was once the studio of Spanish painter María Fortuny is now a temporary exhibition space and apart from a few artefacts from his time there is little from that period. Rather later period and sons works, as well as temporary exhibitions. Which...More

Fortuny Museum is real Venice Museum with old spirit, hidden in the rooms. It is not place with huge crowds, just an old palace in three main floors with some view from the attic. Permanent collection is dusty memory of artist Mariano Fortuny. More interesting...More

Closed for repair work. No guides mentioned this. Save your self time and energy and wait to visit. It is a little tricky to find and seems like a dead end.

The temporary exhibition for the Biennale was interesting, but there is little left of the grand days of Fortuny. A big disappointment in this respect. Perhaps I didn't do my research. Interesting building but didn't come away with much Fortuny related input.

A beautiful palazzo with a stunning mix of spaces in which to display visual arts, ranging from white box room to a fully furnished mid-century reception room full of all sorts of stylish bits and piece. The current show (to November 2017) is amazing.
