Taken from Campo de la Salute, in front of the church Santa Maria della Salute. The narrow house on the left is known as Desdemona’s house because according to the legend, Desdemona (from Shakespeare’s Otello) lived in that house. Palazzetto Contarini-Fasan, which is the official name of the house, was built in 1475. Desdemona in the Medieval Venice was killed by her jelous husband in that house and from that story Shakespeare drew his inspiration for Othello – or so goes the legend… Others say it’s just gondolier’s tale…

I can't for the life of me understand why this shot has received no points: strange lot this TE crowd. I like the unusual framing and the vertical composition that has created horizontal stripes across the frame. Nice one!
