You might well wonder what in the world this structure is. I found it just inside a sotoportego, not very far from the Chiesa di San Zulian. Even though I had been told where it was, and what to look for, I almost missed it.
It was apparently used to hold some form of lighting in that dark sotoportego, maybe a candle, maybe a lamp of some sort.
I like the idea of seeing this simple structure, carved who knows how many centuries ago.
These could take over from my love of the pissotte, but I don’t think there as many of these to be found.
And now, from the 21st century, a set of speed cameras monitoring boats on the Giudecca Canal. Smile, if you’re speeding!
