Venice (4)

This is my last post from Venice as, annoyingly, I have to return to London.

I took the opportunity to make some last peregrinations, motivated by no more than getting to know the city better, which always seems an impossible task.

First, three more heads:-

I passed S. Zulian, a church by Sansovino and assumed that it was S. Zulian over the door, but, in fact, it’s Tommaso Rangone, a physician and philologist (the prominence of donors is not a twentieth-century phenomenon):-

Then I arrived at the back of S. Salvador:-

In S. Salvador itself, there is a statue of S. Sebastian by Alessandro Vittoria:-

The tomb of Andrea and Benedetta Dolfin with statuary by Giulio del Moro (again):-

That’s it. The vaporetto awaits.
