The well room is on the ground floor in the main body of the building. A valuable well curb of the 15th century was placed here by the Camerini family, while the Epigraphic Museum is on the ground floor in the eastern wing.
This museum now also includes the collection coming from the Nani Museum of Villa Pagani in Legnaro, which was moved here by order of the Camerini family at the beginning of the 20th century. The 18th-century collection is mainly made up of items coming from East and arrived to Venice as a consequence of the century-old relationships between the Republic and the Greek isles.
