This rather drab looking building began life in the 15th century, with the third floor added in the 17th century. (According to Egle Trincanato, Venetian domestic architecture)
Keen eyed readers will note that the bar at the corner, with the red awning, is the very one featured at the top of my blog page. It’s the bacaro Strani, a good place for cicchetti and an aperitivo, for instance a spritz. (Campari, please.)
It’s also an ideal place to sit and watch the afternoon passegiata. (The gathering of people of all ages for a time of strolling, chatting, walking the dog, showing off the new baby, doing some shopping for the evening meal.)
The overcast, drizzly day didn’t help much in my attempts to present this dwelling in a better light. Maybe you can find it on a nicer day, with soft sunlight caressing those ancient walls.
Still, the windows, balcony and the ornamental motifs do add a touch of grace to this example of domestic architecture.
