Ducal Palace of Genoa

Overview

Ducal Palace was the palace of the Municipality in the Middle Ages, the age of its foundation, then it became the residence of the doge. The neoclassical façade dates back to 1783 and has two orders of columns, on which rests an attic adorned with statues and trophies. The interior, overlooking a double colonnaded courtyard, has a staircase with two ramps that leads to the upper loggia, where the representative rooms are located. The rooms retain 18th-century furnishings, paintings, tapestries, and a frescoed chapel. Today the building is an avant-garde cultural centre with rooms dedicated to various disciplines (cinema, photography, robotics), congress facilities, exhibition and performance spaces, association and bookstore venues, cafés and restaurants.
