The Unfinished Palazzo: Life, Love and Art in Venice by Judith Mackrell

A harmless bit of art history fun. Peggy Guggenheim was famous first because of family wealth and then again by her prescient support of new modern artists. Retreating from New York, she acquired a Venice palazzo with a colourful history that provides the narrative for a newly published book. The building now houses the glorious Peggy Guggenheim Collection, one of the ‘must see’ attractions of that city.
