The Ca? d?Zan Mansion, which made use of Venetian Gothic Architecture, is considered to be ?the last of the Gilded Age Mansions? built in America. With 56 magnificent rooms furnished with art and original furniture, the mansion serves as a tribute to the American Dream as it reflects the romance and splendour one can find in Italy. It is exudes the charm of the Doge?s Palace in Venice and the gothic beauty of Ca d?Oro. Its beauty is further intensified with the Sarasota Bay as its Grand Canal.

The Ca? d?Zan Mansion, with the meaning ?House of John,? was constructed in 1924 to 1925. Making use of terra cotta blocks, concrete and brick, it costed $1.5 million.

The structure underwent a massive restoration and conservation process amounting to $15 million in April 2002.
