Day 9: Wood culture in Venice

The forest sector’s contribution to sustainability of the built environment in Alpine Europe

Destination: Venice, Italy

At the third day in Venice, we had 3 schedules: a lecture about timber roof and ceiling, a visit in Palazzo Ducale, and another visit to a gondola maker.

We went to Doge’s Palace for having a lecture from architectural professors.


Still in the same complex, we then had a tour with a lovely guide who tell us the stories of the rooms in Doge’s Palace.

“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.” (’s_Palace).
