The Architecture of the Doge’s Palace D.18.11.03

2 Nov

The Doge Palace was a very open-looking building. It had large arches at the ground level and the second level. The logia level, where there’s a balcony, had smaller arches.
On the top stories, there are very large windows. This design suited Venice’s identity as a city that is based primarily on commerce rather than on owning of land.
