The main entrance hall has the typical structure of the Venetian patrician Palazzo, connecting the water gate with the common and garden.

The actual shape of the interior space is a tribute to the show offered by the Grand Canal itself: the center of the property consists of a large living area, similar to a theater auditorium, offering a romantic show of the crossing gondolas and the light reflected on the waves. The amplitude of the living room is accentuated by the remarkable high ceiling, embellished with typical Venetian wooden beams. The floors, in the same way, keep alive the tradition of the Venetian "terrazzo". The property then is equipped with a separate kitchen and a cozy sleeping area made up of an elegant bedroom, a fitted wardrobe and a comfortable bathroom. The tranquility that distinguishes this elegant mansion, also holds a turbulent and mysterious episode of Venetian history: according to some sources at the end of the 1500's, here would be arrested the philosopher Giordano Bruno, deferred to the Holy Inquisition by one member of the Mocenigo Family who was hosting him.
