Maybe you don’t know that the “Ghetto Nuovo” was the old one, and the “Ghetto Vecchio” the newest.

This Palazzo has been the Venice pawnshop for many years (1834 – 1971) and its wonderful halls were used to host the most poor people.
For this reason, in the calli close by, you can still find some old signs like this ” ANTICA AGENZIA AUTORIZZATA ALLE OPERAZIONI PRESSO IL MONTE DI PIETA”
