In 1739, on the occasion of the marriage of Gregorio Barbarigo's marriage with Caterina Sagredo, the family commissioned the redecoration of the piano nobile, with frescoes by Giambattisa Tiepolo and stuccoes by Carpoforo Tencalla (Tiepolo's original The triumph of Virtue and Nobility over Ignorance is now in the Ca' Rezzonico, but has been replaced by a copy).
Since 2005, the chamber music group, Musica a Palazzo has presented opera in the rooms of the palazzo's piano nobile in the style of the 19th-century Italian Salotto Musicale, leading audiences from room to ornate room.
