Loggetta

Loggetta is a small building adjacent to St Mark's Campanile in Venice, Italy. It was built by Jacopo Sansovino and completed in 1549. It was rebuilt in 1912 after it had been destroyed by the fall of the campanile.

Originally, it was a shelter to the guardians of the Doge's Palace.

There are 3 archs on the front of the building and between them there are bronze statues of Minerva, Apollo, Mercurio and The Peace. They respectively symbolized three virtues of the Republic of Venice: wisdom, harmony, eloquence and peace as the aim of foreign policy.
