Restoration of Fondaco dei Tedeschi historical palace in Venice, Italy.

Rizzani de Eccher and Sacaim, one of Rizzani de Eccher’s subsidiaries, were involved in the design and construction project for the restoration and functional recovery of Fondaco dei Tedeschi. The former courthouse of German tradespeople, Fondaco dei Tedeschi is one of the oldest (dating back to 1228) and most impressive Venetian palaces, located in the heart of the city, overlooking Ponte Rialto.

The plan for re-qualification and restoration was designed by Rem Koolhaas.
