A XV century structure, with later enlargements and changes, that were necessary to adapt the building to the rapidly increasing nearby palace that Venice was raising to host its governors. Peculiar and rare the solution adopted for the ground floor arcade, with the twin central columns.
The building also testifies the passage from one branch of the Miari family to the other thanks to two slightly different coats of arms (from XVI and XVII century) carved in the stone of the side pillars of the court entrance: they both show the original and most ancient form of the family coat of arms, whereas the main branch in early XV century had the privilege to add an imperial eagle on top of the shield.
