The palace was designed by Jacopo Sansovino, after a fire that in 1532 had destroyed the previous residence of the Corner family. It was one of the first commissions received by the architect in Venice. The previous residence had been purchased by Giorgio Cornaro, brother of Caterina Cornaro from the Malombra family.
In 1817, after another fire, Andrea Corner sold the palace to the Austrian Empire, which installed here the Provincial Delegation and, later, the Imperial Lieutnancy. Once the Veneto was annexed to Italy in 1866, the palace was chosen as the seat of both the province of Venice and of its prefect.
