Arch support

Walking around in Venice, you’ll often notice arches constructed between buildings on either side of a calle.

They may simply be a structure that lends support to adjacent buildings, or may signify the union of families in those buildings, via marriage.

This one is in a class by itself. The arch was obviously in need of its own support system. I hope it holds up!

  4. Very interesting Yvonne….the arches seem a little feeble to offer support. Sorta like my shoes. I think you may have hit on something re: union of families. I love them…even if they turned out to be decorative.
