Situated in the Gothic palazzo Pesaro degli Orfei in Campo San Beneto; the building was transformed by Mariano Fortuny into his own photography, set-design, stagecraft, fabric-creation and painting atelier: the building still testify to all of these activities, with various art and tapestries collections. The museum also hosts temporary art exhibitions, all of which closely connected to the spirit of its founder.

If you want to see Fortuny´s art or family property please does not pay a visit to this place. This is not a museum of Fortuny of popular art, is a modern art museum where a lot of information is displayed but without any relevance....More

The temporary exhibition for the Biennale was interesting, but there is little left of the grand days of Fortuny. A big disappointment in this respect. Perhaps I didn't do my research. Interesting building but didn't come away with much Fortuny related input.

A beautiful palazzo with a stunning mix of spaces in which to display visual arts, ranging from white box room to a fully furnished mid-century reception room full of all sorts of stylish bits and piece. The current show (to November 2017) is amazing.
