At approximately the midpoint of the fourteenth century a new political statement came to the fore in Venice, a personification of the state, clearly labeled Veneçia (Fig. 1). Enthroned in a roundel high up on the Piazzetta façade of the Palazzo Ducale, her enemies bowed beneath her feet, she is a powerful figure that draws on the secular iconography of virtue personifications and on the religious iconography of representations of the Virgin. Veneçia is no less distinctive for the stylistic currents she brings together. On one hand, her bulk and presence link her to the Giotto-related line of sculpture that is represented in the Veneto in fourteenth-century sculpture above all by the shop of Andriolo de Santi.
