Battaglio (that sounds somewhat more refined than knocker)

This particular door knocker can be found along the Zattere in Dorsoduro. There seem to be quite a number of good examples along here.

The details in this battaglio are quite exceptional, just look at the attention paid to the feet, for example.

  1. I can always find a lovely picture from Venice on Blueoscar. If I can get out early enough on a Saturday morning I’m hoping to “bump” into him!

  2. Have a look on BluOscar’s site, he’s photographed so many of the doors and knockers http://bluoscar.blogspot.com.au/search/label/Venezia%20%28Porte%29

    I’d love to see a photo of your house, it sounds so darn interesting!

        mine is steel I live in an old adobe duck club cabin and those guys didn’t want anyone getting their joy juice in the off season it has 4 padlock slots on the outside and weighs a ton, actually a ratty industrial door and not nearly as nice a door. someone should do a study of Italian doors I love them!
