Casa Grande

Titian's house in the Biri Grande, which he moved to in 1531. Prior to this relocation, Titian's studio was in the Ca' del Duca, across the Grand Canal from the Academia. Although the location of the Casa Grande is no longer on the water's edge because of backfilling, it was when Titian lived there. Titian soon took over the entire building in 1537-9 and expanded the garden in 1549. After his death, his son Pomponio inhabited the house, followed by the painters Francesco Bassano and Leonardo Corona. The house can be found in Cannaregio 5179-83.
