In the present paper an attempt is made to reconstruct the residential compound in medieval Venice of doge Enrico and doge Andrea Dandolo and their kin, using early notarial drafts, charters, and inventories of documents. The history that emerges is compared with theoretical explanations for the existence in the Middle Ages of such family compounds, explanations which-at least in this one instance-are found wanting.
