Palazzo Ducale, Venice

At the centre of the façade of Palazzo Ducale facing the Bacino di San Marco is the balcony of the Sala del Maggior Consiglio (Main Council Chamber). Nine statues by the Dalle Masegne brothers, including three Saints and six Allegories of Virtues, adorned originally the balcony. The statue of St Peter, now exhibited inside the palace, belonged to this group.
