When you finish to see the Doge's Chambers, you can go upstair and to see the Institutional Chambers. The first room that you see is The Square Atrium. It was a is a waiting-room, the antechamber to all the various halls of government. The decoration dates from the 16th century, during the period of Doge Girolamo Prioli, who appears in Tintoretto's ceiling painting with the symbols of his office and accompanied by allegories of Justice and Peace.
