The Palazzo Ducale (Doge’s Palace) in San Marco Square is a masterpiece of Venetian Gothic architecture and a great photo shoot spot. I love the richly decorated columns, the clover tracery on the upper part of the Gothic windows and the uniqueness of the Islamic inspired, elegantly inflected ogee arches. The oriental influence adds a delicate architectural flair almost comparable to white lace, one of Venice’s hand made specialties. A lot of the Venetian aesthetically pleasing architecture is influenced by Byzantine and Islamic styles while maintaining a base of Christian art. How beautifully they come together.
So much art, so much beauty, so much history in just one of the many corners of Venice.
Until next time,
