The Doge's Palace ( Italian : Palazzo Ducale ; Venetian : Pałaso Dogal ) is a palace built in Venetian Gothic style, and one of the main landmarks of the city of Venice in northern Italy . The palace was the residence of the Doge of Venice , the supreme authority of the former Republic of Venice , opening as a museum in 1923. Today, it is one of the 11 museums run by the Fondazione Musei Civici di Venezia .

Political changes in the mid-13th century led to the need to re-think the palace's structure due to the considerable increase in the number of the Great Council's members. The new Gothic palace's constructions started around 1340, focusing mostly on the side of the building facing the lagoon. Only in 1424 did Doge Francesco Foscari decide to extend the rebuilding works to the wing overlooking the Piazzetta, serving as law-courts, and with a ground floor arcade on the outside, open first floor loggias running along the façade, and the internal courtyard side of the wing, completed with the construction of the Porta della Carta (1442).

In 1483, a violent fire broke out in the side of the palace overlooking the canal, where the Doge's Apartments were. Once again, an important reconstruction became necessary and was commissioned from Antonio Rizzo, who would introduce the new Renaissance language to the building's architecture. An entire new structure was raised alongside the canal, stretching from the ponte della Canonica to the Ponte della Paglia , with the official rooms of the government decorated with works commissioned from Vittore Carpaccio , Giorgione , Alvise Vivarini and Giovanni Bellini .
