The First Floor

THE DIMENSIONS

The first floor hall measures 49.15 metres long, 20.95 metres wide and 12.50 metres high

The single room, without columns or partitions, allows for the creative personalization of the space

The ceiling is reinforced with metal trusses, useful as supports for installations and stage designs

 

THE UPPER HALL

The large room on the first floor is a single hall with frescoed walls. Together with the Great Council Hall at the Palazzo Ducale, it is the largest hall in the historic centre of Venice.

THE FRESCOES

The chapter house is richly decorated with frescoes painted in grisaille in imitation of sculptures, and attributed to the school of Paolo Veronese. The figures of the twelve major prophets, here the undisputed protagonists of the room, represent a unique achievement in the arts of Venice at that time in their scale and complexity.
