Yet another of the little jewels from Venetian domestic architecture (Trincanato and Salvadori) are these dwellings to be found in this corte.
Trincanato says “24 small houses, built in 1529 with a bequest of Pietro Olivieri made to the members of the Scuola di San Marco.”
As I recall the well was hexagonal in shape. Those masegni (paving stones) look to have been around for a few centuries.
This inscribed marble will give some of you an hour or so of deciphering fun!
The dwellings were originally built as working-class housing, and they still retain a humble appearance.
