"Palazzetto Venezia" submitted by RomeTour Editorial Team and last updated on Wednesday 11th May 2011
It is a copy of the original palace (1467) that was moved from Piazza Venezia in 1911 because it obstructed the view of the Monument of Victor Emmanuel II. It adjoins Palazzo Venezia and faces Via and Piazza di S.Marco. The palace was erected by order of Paul II Barbo. At present it is a seat of some International Institutions.
At the angle between the Palazzetto and the secondary entrance to the Palazzo Venezia is "Madama Lucrezia", a big marble statue originally from Iseum Campensis and considered to be the bust of Isis. It is one of the "talking statues" of Rome.
In the garden in front of it is a fountain (1927) with a pinecone, the emblem of this district, the Rione della Pigna.
