Palazzo Contarini del Bovolo

is a late Gothic building in Venice, located in the San Marco district, near Campo Manin, and overlooking the Rio di San Luca.

The palace was built between the three and the fifteenth century as the home of the Contarini “of San Paternian”, which from the end of the fifteenth century, due to the addition of the spiral staircase, were nicknamed “by Bovolo”. In 1499 Pietro Contarini, Marco Contarini and Giovanni Battista Contarini, senators of the Serenissima Republic of Venice, added to the inner courtyard a small building in Renaissance style, characterized by a series of open loggias with round or low arches.

In 1717 the complex passed to Giovanni Minelli who had married Elisabetta di Pietro Maria Contarini, the last representative of the family. At the beginning of the nineteenth century it was bought by the Emery company, from which it was rented to Arnoldo Marseille who opened in 1803 a hotel called “del Maltese” (hence the name of the Maltese court on which overlooks the palace). In 1852 it was ceded by will to the parish of San Luca and became the seat of the Congregation of Charity.

In 1859, the then lithographer Wilhelm Tempel conducted his first astronomical observations from the tower belvedere, with a telescope of his own. Here he discovered, on 2 April 1859, comet C/1859 G1, and on 19 October 1859 the Merope Nebula in the open cluster of the Pleiades. The palace still belongs to the IRE of Venice, acronym for institutions of shelter and education.
