Firearms at the Palazzo Ducale di Venezia

It is officially Guns-In-Castles week at The Firearm Blog. YamaLink emailed in a photo he took last week of some very old pistols that are on display at the Palazzo Ducale di Venezia (the Palace of the Doge) in Venice, Italy.

  • You would love the Swedish palace “skokloster”. They have a room in one of the towers with over 20k old weapons. All of them made by masters of the trade. Open to the public btw.

    • Heintron, I would love to see that!

    I love seeing these. St. Louis Art Museum has a small collection of a few things, and every time I go (it’s free), I always end up in the arms and armor section.

  • Chortles

    I’m sorry, but my reaction is oh-WOOOOOOW it’s the place from Assassin’s Creed II!

  • Very nice! It would be nice if Pedersoli or some other company brings out replicas of some of the more exotic designs.
