Whenever I look at the portraits of my ancestors, I feel proud to be somehow part of the history of the most incredible city man has ever dared to invent.
And I like to think that meeting this house was the completion of a journey that led me to rediscover a part of my roots.
I must say it was not difficult to hear the call of this place. And of the stories told by these walls.
Simple stories of daily life, of the people who worked here, of the barrels stored during the Napoleonic era, of the glass factory, of the fire that threatened the very existence of the building.
Stories that will certainly never end up in a book, but which, in their own way, are part of what contributed to building the eternal myth of the Serenissima
Ca’ Ranieri Tenti is located in one of the most authentic corners of Venice, in that part of the Castello district near the western side of the Arsenale; an area where the chatter of the dialect wins over the noises of the crowd, where people still live their city in serenity. Yet close to the main attractions: in particular, the spaces of the Biennale are literally a few steps away.Average response time: Less than 24 hrs
The Casa is easy to reach both by walk, close as it is to several stops of the public transport lines, and by water.
In fact, it overlooks a small canal and offers its own exclusive water gate, which allows access to the apartment
directly from a boat. This allows convenient connections, for quick travel, in total autonomy and absolute privacy in the city, at the Lido, or to any island in the lagoon.
Inside, Ca 'Ranieri Tenti combines modern elements with other more traditional ones, giving space to a very personal eclectic style. A style that draws inspiration from the different faces that Venice can offer, from the more traditional of buildings plastered in earthenware, marked by time, to the more avant-garde one.
The apartment has two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a fully equipped kitchen and a living area featuring a small loggia overlooking the canal, where one can have a drink or have breakfast in a truly unique setting.
