Can wallpaper be installed over Venetian plaster?

It can, whatever texture it has will show through.

The texture that is generally associated with venetian plaster would not allow the seams to come together flush. It would seem it would not be attractive.

That depends.. Most important question would be:
Is the shading in the plaster done with wax?

And the other would have to do with texture, but you could smooth it with a (ready-made) mud. But if there was wax involved, a thorough clean-up or even removal might be needed.

Thanks, all, you for your comments. The previous home owners completed the plaster installation so I'm unsure about any wax coating. Lucky for me it is a *smooth* coat so seams may not be a problem. I guess I could do a test section of wallpaper to see if it adheres barring any coating..?? Otherwise, I'm unsure about how I can change the wall's appearance since it's a gold hue which I'm not fond of given my color scheme.

You could give it a good wash with dishwashingsoap first and then spirit once the water is dried. After that prime and paint or wallpaper.
