Doge's Palace - Secret Itineraries guide

Museum Book

The itinerary begins from the communicating rooms of the Notaio Ducale and of the Deputato alla Segreta del Consiglio dei Dieci. The rooms can be reached from the Atrio Quadrato. From here you arrive at the room of the Cancellier Grande, the chief of the office that, today, would be called Archivio Generale.From this room, a stair leads to the large and beautiful room of the Cancelleria Segreta, whose walls were entirely covered by cupboards to keep the public deeds and secret contracts of most of the Venice magistrature.Walking Through the room of the Reggente alla Cancelleria you reach the Stanza della Tortura (room of Torture). This disturbing place, also called Camera del Tormento (room of Torment), was directly linked to the prisons.
After the room of Torture you find the Piombi zone. The name comes from the lead coverage of its roof. Here are the cells that imprisoned the members of the Consiglio dei Dieci who were accused of minor misdeeds, most of them about politics. Those rooms were described by Giacomo Casanova who was held there. The cells in the Piombi zone offered better conditions than the Pozzi, terrible cells located in the ground floor of the Doge’s Palace. From the Piombi zone you go on with the visit to the large and interesting space of the sottotetto (attic) and its wooden structures. A large collection of arms dating 1500 is housed in its cupboards. From the sottotetto, going down the stairs, we reach the Sala degli Inquisitori (Inquisitors’ room). This magistrature was founded in 1539 and it was feared by people: its duty was to keep secret the work of the Republic. The ceiling of the room is decorated by works of Tintoretto, dating from 1566 to 1567. The Sala dei Tre Capi follows: the Tre Capi (three Heads) were three magistrates that every moth were chosen among the ten members of the Consiglio dei Dieci. The fresoces on the ceiling, 1553-1554, are by Giambattista Zelotti (la Vittoria della virtù sul Vizio), while the frescoes on the side walls are by Veronese and Giambattista Ponchino.From the Sala dei Tre Capi, through a secret wooden passage, you reach the Sala del Consiglio dei Dieci and go back to the normal itinerary for the palaces’ visit.
