Palazzo Zeno courtyard

The 15th century building was commissioned by the Zenos, an ancient family that played an important part in the history of the Serenissima. Its members even included a Doge, Renier Zeno (1253), besides ambassadors, senators and cardinals.

The palace, which overlooks Rio di San Stin, a perfectly preserved example of the Venetian Gothic style of the 14th century, will be the magnificent setting for the evening. Savour the sample servings that will involve all the senses.

Palazzo Zeno hall

And, for guests to fully experience the atmosphere, the menu features Venetian dishes prepared by an award-winning Venetian catering firm, whose family history counts cooks for royal families. The Gala Dinner will offer samples of both new and ancient fragrances designed to meet the standards of the expected guests.
