The Palazzo Mocenigo museum serves a double purpose. The interior gives a fine illustration of the sort of furniture and fittings an 18th-century Venetian noble family surrounded itself with. The Mocenigo family provided the Republic with seven doges, and the paintings, friezes and frescoes by late 18th-century artists such as Jacopo Guarana and Gian Battista Canal glorify their achievements.
In the rooms off the main salone are the dusty display cases that serve the museum's other function: to chronicle 18th-century Venetian dress. An andrienne dress with bustles so horizontal you could rest a cup and saucer on them, antique lace and silk stockings, a whalebone corset - ita patchy but charming collection.
