Palazzo Cavalli in Padua Italy, was built by the Foscari family between the late 15th and early 16th centuries. It was purchased in the mid-17th century from the local superintendent Marin Cavalli, who totally renovated and commissioned the frescoes which now embellish it.

In 1760 the building was inherited by the Bollani family. During Austrian rule it became a barracks (1818-1836) and in 1840 was purchased by the State and used as a customs-house until 1890.
In the last decade of the 19th century Palazzo Cavalli was donated to the then Royal University and transformed into the School for Engineering. It was used as such until 1932.
