Photographer's Note

Doge's Palace, Venice

The palace was the residence of the Doge of Venice, the supreme authority of the Republic of Venice.

The courtyard facades of the two oldest wings are simple and severe, whilst the Renaissance wing facade is much more ornate, and culminates towards the far end in the Giantís Staircase. Used for formal entrances into the Palace, this is guarded by two colossal statues of Mars and Neptune which were produced by Sansovino in 1565 and symbolise Veniceís power on both land and sea.
