The Gothic style in the 13th – 15th centuries had the greatest impact on Venice’s buildings. The Gothic (e.g. with the Doge’s Palace) particularly suited the typical Venetian-filigree building type, which was determined not least by the particularly unstable building site.

The Doge’s Palace in Venice has been the seat of the Doge and the government and judicial organs of the Republic of Venice since the 9th century. The palace was the governmental and administrative center of the republic and at the same time an impressive symbol of the size and power of the Maritime Republic of Venice.
