Hotel Highlights
In the spaces of an old abbey in the heart of Venice, the Hotel Abbazia has rediscovered the authentic poetic atmosphere of the Monastery of Venice's Discalced Carmelite Friars, which has always been an enchanting place of hospitality and tradition. The hotel is framed by a rare garden whose spaces and comfort have been enhanced by a skillful restoration. Designed by Giuseppe Sardi (b. S. Angelo di Vado – Pesaro 1680 – d. Rome 1753) and made of Carrara marble, it represents the triumph of the Virgin-Mother, whose statue dominates the centre. Six pairs of corinthian colums stand over a tall, solid pedestal. The niches set between them contain statues of Saints: Sebastian, Mary Magdalen, Margaret and John the Baptist. In the centre is a large imposing portal. These columns support and ornate entablature, which carries a further four pairs of composite colums; the statue of the Madonna is in the middle, flaked by St. Jerome, Faith, Hope (badly damaged after a fall) and St. Bartholoew. The façade is surmounted by a pediment, bearing the coat of arms of the Counts Cavazza, patrons of the Curch. On the pediment there is a statue of Christ triumphant, with Adam and Cain on his right and Abel and Eve on his left. The façade is the work of various artists, such as Clemente Molli ( b. Bologna 17th century), Francesco Penso, called Cabianca (b. Venice 1665 – d. 1737) and G. Bonazza ( b. Padua 1650 – d. 1736). It has been rather badly damaged, unfortunatly, by generations of pigeons.
