It often happens that a restaurant’s name doesn’t have a clear meaning, but that it’s been chosen according to the owner’s taste.
Marciana restaurant is named after the library of the same name, placed in St. Mark’s Square in front of Palazzo Ducale. The Marciana library, among the biggest ones in Italy, keeps one of the most precious collections of Greek, Latin and Asiatic manuscripts of the world. The building was designed by the architect Jacopo Sansovino and shows a peculiar style for the Venetian environment of the time (1500s), because it recalls the old Roman models. Inside we can find the well-known sale monumentali (literally monumental halls). Each museum area hosts exhibitions and events, but it’s a piece of art itself: from the Scala d’Onore (the Stairway of Honor) to the hall dedicated to be a Library, the location becomes a refined artistic path.
We recommend you to visit it during your Venetian stay.
