    • According to Jeff Cotton (Churches in Venice website), the present belfry would be roughly 200-300 years old.

      Jeff says re: the campanile, “The original one can be seen on Matthaeus Merian’s map of 1635 (right) but was demolished (in 1826 or 1728) and replaced with the current belfry.”

  3. Since I walked by there several times a day during my last two visits I couldn’t help but notice small details and how it changed at various times of the day.
    It’s located right next door to my favorite hardware store! If they don’t have it, you don’t need it. My late husband would have loved it even if he wouldn’t have been able to talk to anyone who worked there. Definitely a Venetian neighborhood.
    Great pics as usual, cara Yvonne.

  5. This is San Giovanni in Bragora, Antonio Vivaldi was born nearby and here has been christened.

  6. I like the gradual zeroing on a detail like the bell — allows one to appreciate the bigger picture as well as one particular aspect.
