In my non-structured wanders through Venice, every once in awhile, I would look up, and see examples of old and new numbering systems.
Here are a few, so you be on the lookout, next time you’re here.
This one is pretty straightforward, the old, outdated Roman numeral supplanted by the modern numbering system.
And this one was right next door.
This one also followed the same pattern. I did wonder about the large discrepancy between the old numbers, in this 4, and the new number. Were there so few numbered houses at some time?
Then came this one, also shown in the following photo. First there is the number 18, followed by the Greek symbol for 'omega', then a number in Roman numerals
And then, a third numbering system for this one address. Intriguing. Mysterious, rather like Venice, in fact.
