Research Library for Venetian Studies

Enabled by a grant from the Samuel H. Kress Foundation, in 2006 Columbia began to appraise and catalogue the content of the Muraro library—some 6348 volumes, including 206 rare books— a project conducted in collaboration with the Avery Fine Arts and Architectural Library.

Following the untimely death of David Rosand in August 2014, generous donations in his honor enabled Columbia University to undertake a major renovation of Casa Muraro in an effort to convert the house into a state-of-the-art Teaching Center and Research Library for Venetian Studies.
