Palazzo dei Camerlenghi, Venice

Palazzo dei Camerlenghi, Venice

The palace was built in the fifteenth century and finished in 1488. From 1525 to 1528 it was enlarges under design by Guglielmo dei Grigi, who was inspired by the style of Mauro Codussi and Pietro Lombardo. It was the seat of several financial magistrates, including the Camerlenghi whom it takes its name from, the Consuls of the Traders and the Supra-Consuls of the Traders. Due to this function, the lower floor was used as a jail for the insolvents: the location near the crowded Rialto Bridge served as an admonition for the people passing there.
