Palazzo Ducale

Palace Lucca, Italy

The headquarters of the Province of Lucca Palazzo Ducale

The Ducal Palace is a palace in Lucca, Tuscany, central Italy. The palace is located on the site of the Fortezza Augustan, the residence of condottiero Castruccio Castracani, where also was his palace, perhaps designed by Giotto. The large complex, which occupied some one fifth of the city, was destroyed by the populace in 1370. The fortress was restored and used as residence by Paolo Guinigi in 1401; after his fall in 1429 this was again partially dismantled and later became the Palazzo Pubblico ("Public Palace").
