Casa Muraro: Center for Venetian Studies

Casa Muraro is the former home and library of the Venetian art historian Michelangelo “Mic” Muraro (1913–1991) and his wife, theater historian Maria Teresa Muraro. Located a few steps away from the Peggy Guggenheim Museum in Calle Barbaro, half way between the Gallerie dell’Accademia and the Punta della Dogana/Pinault Collection in Venice’s Dorsoduro quarter, Casa Muraro was bequeathed to Columbia University in 2003 to honor the memory of Mic Muraro and to celebrate his life-long friendship with fellow art historian and Columbia Professor David Rosand (1938–2014).
