Beautiful art museum on this occasion featuring a nod to The Deco period. Get your tickets on the first floor before climbing the three flights of stairs to the gallery. There's a lovely café next to the building with yummy pastries.

Genoa was a republic and the most powerful & prosperous city in the world for 300 years. Palazzo Ducale, like the Doge's Palace in Venice, was the seat of power... and glory. Now, there are shops & bars on the main atrium level. The upper floors are dedicated to important art & architecture shows drawing interest from all of Europe. The building is a compilation of styles, the Medieval towards the Piazza de' Ferrari to the Baroque on the Piazza Matteotti. The palace is the epicenter of Genoa.

This is not Venice, as this Palazzo Ducale (Doge's Palace) is a little more pedestrian in terms of its rich Genova empire history and wider public use. The only tickets required are for the museum contained within and for the wide variety of cultural events that are held here. And all Gayle and I had to do was walk in from either the street or the Piazza De Ferrari.

Un tempo dimora dei Dogi di Genova, oggi è un museo e un centro per
eventi culturali e mostre d'arte. È situato nel cuore della città, con due entrate e facciate diverse, la principale su Piazza Matteotti e la seconda su Piazza De Ferrari.
Da non perdere le prigioni, la Sala del Maggior Consiglio, quella del Minor Consiglio (guardate gli affreschi che decorano i soffitti) e la “Torre del Popolo”, chiamata la Grimaldina.

Anni fa, in questo splendido palazzo, ho avuto la fortuna di ammirare una mostra su Fida e Diego Riveira, le sale si erano prestate benissimo a confezionare con delicata eleganza le tele dei due artisti. Trovo sempre che la relazione tra un palazzo antico, come quello Ducale di Genova, con arte più o meno moderna, riesce a creare una sorta di sinfonia piacevole, che rende in un tono maggiore la mostra stessa.
Pensate che fu proprio all'interno di questo palazzo che nel 2011 si tenne quel famoso G8 di Genova dalla risoluzione catastrofica.
