Vincenzo Morosini (1511 - 1588) held a number of important posts in and around Venice. A Senator, he was Prefect of the Republic in 1555 and Savio di Terrafirma. In 1578 he was appointed Procurator di San Marco de Citra, and in 1584 became President of the University of Padua.

He wears the 'Stola d'Oro' on his right shoulder, the privilege of the Venetian Knighthood.
