Artist's Description

Looking North East along the Grand Canal from the Riva del Vin at the corner of Rio Terà San Silvestro in the beautiful city of Venice, Italy.

The Riva del Vin is so called because this dock area was used in the past as an unloading area for barrels of wine.

In the back of the shot (on the left) past the crowded little restaurants can be seen the Rialto Bridge (Italian: Ponte di Rialto), the oldest of the four bridges spanning the Grand Canal.

The bell-tower of San Bartolomeo can be seen on the right of the shot. The church of San Bartolomeo (Saint Bartholomew) was supposedly founded in 830, and was originally dedicated to Saint Demetrius of Thessaloniki. It was renovated in 1170, and became the church of the German community in Venice, whose commercial headquarters were nearby at the Fondaco dei Tedeschi. The church was rebuilt again in the 18th century. The bell tower was built in 1747-1754 based on designs of Giovanni Scalfarotto.

The whole of Venice and its Lagoon is designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
