Thanks, Annie. I was sure we could rely on you! My bad! Of course I’ve been over that bridge – many a time. Perhaps the graffiti put me off. I will take more notice next time. What do you think is on the shield below the Madonna and Child? It looks a bit like a hovercraft or power-boat!
Bert, it looks like the symbol for the shoemakers (calegheri), or it could be a jet-ski! 🙂
Santa Croce 2042, on the Ponte del Cristo o del Tintor. Not far from campo Santa Maria Mater Domini. Cheers, Annie
Thank you, Annie! You surely are our shrine expert.
M, Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark?
OMD is Italian for OMG
Leave it to ol’ eagle-eye Yvonne to find 3 virtually identical street shrines in Venice!
In fact, the only difference I can detect is the sizes. What an eerie coincidence!
Sono, you just lost your spot in the will, yet again. Get back to being a wee groveller, please.
For Melissa, in case she doesn’t go back over old posts – I nearly missed her question since I rarely go back to them: I use ombra.net> Venice civic number (left-hand column). Enter a sestiere and a number, et voilà! I had to try several combinations in each sestiere before I hit the right one. Knowing the highest numbers in Dorsoduro,Santa Croce and San Polo, I was able to eliminate a few alternatives. For each possibility I then checked on veniceconnected.
M, it so is so! It’s totally so. I’m pretty sure I haven’t seen that shrine before. The photo (or two) before and after might help.
Bert, I had looked, the photos before and after are no help whatsoever.
Are you saying you don’t have a clue, Bert! 🙂
Sorry, I really don’t know where that shrine is located. I trolled all through Annie’s site with no luck. Maybe I’ll come across it, next visit.
OMD! Bert without a clue! Say it isn’t so.
Surely it will be easier to milk them if he gets off his bike!
Also, I need a clue.
Yes, indeed, many things of beauty in our favorite city. There were two of these street shrines on my way “home” to my apartment…at the ends of my bridges.
I wonder how many shrines there might be in Venice, Michelle?
Is that my assignment for December?
“Your mission, should you choose to accept it ….”
Hello! There are so many things of beauty in Venice, Julie.
How is that ute today? 🙂
Ha! The brat has it in the garage with a cover over it because he doesn’t want the peacocks to poop on it. He’s gone off to milk the cows on his bike!
That sounds about right.
Beautiful? Those fat little babies all got fugly faces.
And God ain’t exactly George Clooney either.
Mary, however, is HOT!
Sono, Sono, Sono, what good were all those days we spent together listening to Father Flynn’s sermons?
