I had a grand plan to find all of the dwellings mentioned in Venetian domestic architecture (Egle Trincanato and Renzo Salvadori). Alas, my plans went awry when I discovered how difficult it can be to get a proper photo of a dwelling in the dark, narrow calli of Venice.
But, on occasion, I spot one of these buildings, and have a fairly good opportunity for photos.
One such, from the late 16th or early 17th century, can be seen from the Fondamenta dei Cereri and also from Fondamenta de le Procuratie.
I wonder if the “elegant flats at either end of blocks” as described in the booklet, still exist?
This was taken from Fondamenta de Ca Rizzi.
Is this what is meant by a “Leonardo staircase”?
