The Gozze-Gučetić palace stands at the corner of St. Joseph and Ulica od puča street. Rectangular in shape, it opens the eastern residential block in the Street of St. Joseph, facing it to the north. The palace consists of a ground floor, once occupied by shops, a storehouse and an entrance hall, above which are two floors used as dwelling areas. Impressive in size, it stretched over three medieval construction parcels. It is an excellent example of Dubrovnik’s representative Renaissance residential architecture, displaying elements of the Renaissance classicism as well. Thus it is assumed that the palace was constructed in the latter half or the end of the 16th century. As no evidence on the identity of the person who had commissioned the construction of the palace or its date is available, the preserved heraldic insignia leads to the conclusion that the building may have belonged to the two patrician families, Martinussio-Martinušić and Gozze- Gučetić. The fact that in the Renaissance period the Martinussio family began to lose position, declined and finally died off, while the Gozze-Gučetić were among the most powerful patrician families of the day leads one to assume that the palace was owned by the Gozze. On December 6, 1991, when Dubrovnik was severely attacked by the Yugoslav Army, the Serbs and Montenegrins, the palace suffered a direct hit of a phosphorus shell and was burnt down to the ground. The only remains were the perimetric walls and the damaged ground floor. Parts of its facade were damaged by shrapnels. The archaeological examination, which was carried out after the destruction, revealed remains of the Romanesque-Gothic residential architecture. In the course of the research, considerable architectural changes in the interior of the palace dating from the 19th century were discovered. The guidelines of the conservation project, according to which the reconstruction of the palace should have been performed, are in strict conformity with the monumental integrity of the building, valorizing adequately each of the preserved elements of the once magnificent Dubrovnik palace of the Renaissance.
