Located on the third floor of Cà Pesaro, this collection was a gift from Austria to Venice after the First World War, as an act of reparation for damage caused by its incendiary bombs.

It's an eclectic collection of over 30,000 items, concentrated on the Japanese Edo period, including screens, lacquer boxes, weapons, kimonos and armour, amassed by a 19th-century Marco Polo, Enrico di Bourbon Parma, Count of Bardi, who travelled widely in Asia from 1887-89.
