Palazzo Ducale, Venice

In the Venetian Republic, the Maggior Consiglio elected a magistracy, made up of three members (the "Avogadri"). The Sala dell'Avogadria was the council chamber for this very ancient magistracy which dealt with fiscal problems and acted as public prosecutor in trials, with the principal task of ensuring application of the laws. On the wall by the entrance is a Resurrection with Three Avogadri by Domenico Robusti.
