At 3126 Calle Crosera, San Marco, you may notice this grafitti of 2 elegant shoes.
Walk a little further down the block, and you’ll find 2 more, at 3134.
In between these two landmarks, you’ll see this tablet on the wall, above head level. (I watched so many people just walk by and not take any notice of these.)
The inscription on the tablet commemorates the repair of the German Calegheri hospital, in October , 1659.
As I was studying all of these offerings a man whom I’d previously met in the neighbourhood came along, and told me a bit about the history of the area. Then, he took me around a corner, and showed me the Corte de la Pelle (Court of the pelts or skin), where workers would prepare hides for the Calegheri to use for making shoes. As always, the history just oozes out of the stones of this city!
