Palazzo Ducale in Venice is surely the monument on which guides and tourist pauses more, as its elegant beauty cannot pass unnoticed. In this palace many artists worked, artists that lived in Venice and are now extremely famous, as Jacopo Tintoretto and his son Domenico. These two artists worked at the painting The Paradise, which covers an entire wall of a hall, used by the council of the republic to gather and discuss about the city and its law. Jacopo and Domenico Tintoretto at first painted different section of the huge painting on different canvas, which assembled together on the wall so that the final painting could seem as one. This work is one of the most beautiful of Palazzo Ducale in Venice.


This painting is not just beautiful but thanks to its dimensions, (it is high 7 meters and large 22 meters) is it the bigger painting in the world. The first idea of the painting wanted Mary at the centre of the painting, at the top of it, where the sight of the spectators ends its journey. However, the initial idea of putting Mary at the top was substituted by Christ as a Divine Doge.
