Lodgetta is a building located next to the bell tower in Piazza San Marco.

Lodgetta was erected on the site of a stable in 1537-1540 designed by the architect Jacopo Sansovino. The building material for the construction was marble. The building was made in the form of a triumphal arch.

Initially, the building was intended to meet nobles, but by 1559 it was used as a guardhouse to guard the Doge's Palace.   In the 18th century, the lodge was used as the headquarters of the city lottery.

In 1902, after the collapse of the bell tower, large-scale reconstruction works were carried out in the lodge.
