Sassy, and shadowy

I had to smile at the faces on these door bells … so cheeky. They look like they’re saying “Nyah, nyah.”

These two gondolas were casting perfect shadows into the water of the canal.

About time for a pissotta, I suppose. A fellow would run the risk of electrocution if he decided to throw caution to the wind, and make furtive use of this one.

  1. Hi, Rob, and thank you for the information. I wonder if they’ll notice an increase in ‘foreigners’ buying their products? The foundry I visited does this sort of thing also, and they have a retail outlet in Calle Fiubera, San Marco.

    There’s a monumental masons shop near the Fundamenta Nove vaporetto stop that does all these entry phone & bell ‘plates’ as well as funeral stuff.

    I suppose it’s the nearest stop to the Cimitero di San Michele, there are several florists down this calle too.


  3. OK, now we’ve got a good gang going. We just have to find that large person to stand in front of us and look innocent.

    I could happily have a selection of those doorbells and mount them on a nice background and just hang them on my wall. They are fantastic.

    I want one of those doorbells.

    And that should say “pissotta”…where’s the edit button??

    A trip to that pissotta could be “electrifying” and “shocking” and they deserve what they get.
    Love the gondola reflections. Glad to see I’m still getting a daily dose of Venice.


  8. OH I love those doorbells! So funny! Missed those…ah well, another time.

    The doorbells are at Calle Larga San Lorenzo, very near to the antique street sign. I took a couple of photos of them in 2008.
