During my last week in Venice I was invited to join the Venetian group who endeavour to ensure that the street signs (nizioleti) are maintained in the traditional manner, for an evening stroll.
The featured guest of the event was Alberto Toso Fei, a noted Venetian author. As we walked from Campo San Geremia, through the ghetto to Campo dei Mori, Alberto recounted stories and legends about the landmarks.
Then, what a delightful surprise for me; we were invited into the corte of the Palazzo , which leads to the vestibule of a group of apartments tucked away out of public view. Prosecco and cicchetti were served, and there was time to socialise and meet many interesting Venetians.
Here is the last of the group to leave the corte.
