The Doge’s Palace - St. Mark’s Square Museums. The Doge’s Palace is a masterpiece of Gothic Architecture and its structure includes the original foundations, the fourteenth/fifteenth-century structure, remarkable additions from the Renaissance and Mannerist details. The structure is composed in three different blocks that absorb previous constructions.
The oldest wing is the one looking towards the St. Mark’s Basin, contains the Hall of the Great Council and has been rebuilt starting from 1340.
The Court Rooms, included in the wing which faces the Saint Mark’s Square, hosts the Sala dello Scrutinio and it was erected in its actual form from 1424 onwards.
The wing facing the canal side and hosting the Doge’s apartments and several gouvernment offices, was erected between 1483 and 1565, during the Renaissance.
The entrance to the Doge Palace reservd to public is located in Via Porta del Frumento (Forage Gateway), so called because the “Ufficio delle Biade” (Fodder Office) was situated nearby; which opens under the portico of the fourteenth-century facade overlooking the "Bacino San Marco". The public services and the Museo dell'Opera (Museum of the work done on the building) are located on the ground floor; the ancient palace kitchens now house the Cafeteria and a space for the temporary exhibitions.
