CASA DEI CARRARESI, Via Palestro, 33/35 - Treviso
 
The current structure of Casa dei Carraresi (Carraresi’s House) was called "Osteria alla Croce" at the end of 15th century.
The finding of historical documents regarding the House enabled to establish the Osteria alla Croce found its seat within the today’s Casa dei Carraresi; this was born to give a public service to refresh and to lodge the travellers who were coming to Treviso from Austria and Germany.
 

The name " Ca’ dei Carraresi " would arise from Carraresi’s blazon affixed on main fašade in Middle Ages to indicate that the " Hospicium " had been allocated as seat of officials and soldiers being in noble family’s pay.

The Carraresi requisitioned the building probably for a time. The use of this building as residence in Treviso is only a supposition.

Then there is Casa Brittoni, close to Ca’ dei Carraresi; it is less known than the first probably, but it is richer in frescoes which have attained to us. In 1396 this building was bought by Giovanni Bertoni, who was the manager of Osteria alla Croce.

Some restorations concerned this complex between 1396 and 1397 particularly: the wooden pillars sinking into the river Cagnan were replaced by others made by bricks and the building of a terrace (podilium) by bricks, which took the place of pre-existent by wood.

There was another restoration after some year, in the beginning of 15th century following new licence of Podestà in Treviso.

   
This new licence allowed to replace the old wooden columns located along the "calesella" with other by bricks on condition that the new pillars didn’t trespass on public property and that the porticoes were open to the free passing of the citizens.

Casa dei Carraresi appears us today as an impressive Romanesque building made by rough bricks; the main fašade (along Via Palestro) is typified by an arcade with five round arches leaning on stone columns and the halls of the ground floor receive the outside light from them.
 
It is possible to see a series of double lancet windows and triple lancet windows on the main fašade (always along the side of Via Palestro), these windows are placed symmetrically and the blazon of Da Carrara was restored.
The opposite fašade of this building is overlooking Pescheria (the Fish Market), the terrace on the river Cagnan, flowing beneath the building partly, leans against five pillars and it is overflowed by as many arches closed by glass wall.
 

Casa Brittoni has its entrance on Vicolo Spineda and it is an one body with Casa dei Carraresi; we may see still several beautiful medieval frescoes within it.

The most interesting, among these, are: a "Madonna con bambino" dating back to the first decades of 15th century, a decoration made by a false upholstery and the "Incontro tra un poeta ed un cavaliere" with a landscape on the back, works made in 16th century.
