It was a rainy day in Venice, with an acqua alta this morning. This latter event brought out all the vendors of temporary waterproof footwear. Temporary in the sense that they may not endure very long.
It was a good day to go to one of the many excellent museums that Venice boasts. I chose the Ca’ Rezzonico which faces onto the Grand canal.
Look at this gorgeous little fellow who greets you as you enter the museum.
He has such plump little knees. Maybe he was brought up on fritelle?
Near the end of the visit, this bust stopped me in my tracks. How in the world do you achieve this with a lump of marble and some hand tools?
My fritella of choice today was con crema (with cream). It has crept into number 2 spot, after zabaione, and before venexiana and ricotta.
