When boats and the tired rowers arrive in the Cannaregio Canal is always a mess.

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

The first Jews in fact went to live in the island called the new foundry” (Getto nuovo), and only when they grew in number also occupied the area calledold foundry” (Getto vecchio).

The Venice old pawnshop

12 March, 2015

Palazzo Corner della Regina

Palazzo Corner della Regina

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”
