Notes NOTES: This 16th century Venetian palazzo housed the library and the art collection left to the public by Count Giovanni Querini Stampalia in 1869. Carlo Scarpa's remodelling of the ground floor and the garden in 1961-1963, included the removal of extraneous 19th century additions, the repositioning of the entrances, the recovery of the original space of the 'portego' (water entrance from the canal) and the layout of the garden.
