It’s not often you see the metal pieces that made up the working parts of the old wells.
A church that is so easy to walk past, because it is tucked away just off a busy thoroughfare, is San Giovanni Elemosinaro. After visiting this Chorus pass church, I stepped outside to look at the campanile. It warranted a close-up view.

Anyone who has visited the Rialto market will have seen this clock face, on San Giacometto. On Churches of Venice, this 24 hour clock is described as “ever wrong.”
As you walk down the left hand side of the bridge, going towards the market, you will see a row of souvenir stands in front of you. Go behind them, where there are shop fronts, and look up. What you are looking at are the remains of frescoes, most of them painted in the early 1500s.
In italy, you often see a pink or blue bow fastened to a door or window, to announce the birth of a daughter or son. I wonder if these two blue bows herald the arrival of twin sons?
