Venice - Cannaregio District
The name of the district is thought to derive from Canal Regio, the name given to the channel that runs through the district of St. Job in San Geremia and combining the lagoon of the Grand Canal. And 'one of the most fascinating interpretations but more likely the name comes from a corruption of the ancient Cannarecium that place where reeds grew in large quantities. This hypothesis is confirmed by a document dated 1410 which reads: "Cannaregio imperciochè was chanedo et Paludo with chanelle" and the fact that one of the oldest families in Venice, the Malipiero, settled in this area and used the cane for building the vessels it with fire produced by burning reeds melted pitch, which was used to waterproof boats.
The Cannaregio district is the largest town after the castle, but the most populated. Cannaregio it occupies almost the whole entire part of town north of the Grand Canal, extending from the railway station (low numbers), north of Santa Croce which is connected via the Scalzi Bridge and the Bridge of the Constitution, up to Castle, which is bordered to the east and south almost entirely, with the exception of the parish of St. Canciano bordering the Campo San Bartolomeo, in the San Marco.
The main waterway is the Cannaregio Canal, which connects the Grand Canal and the lagoon. It is the only internal channel of center, in addition to the Grand Canal, to be crossed by boat.
Cannaregio has always been a popular and historic red-light district. The areas located outside the lagoon (King's Bay, Chiovere, St. Jerome) until the seventies were considered infamous because of the high percentage of affected residents. A series of rehabilitation projects, including construction of new housing on former industrial wasteland, has achieved a full recovery of the area.

A lovely, clear shot of Venice where the canal makes a strong f/g triangle and the moored boats lead naturally into the distance. Can you believe, not one of them is a gondola!
The dof is excellent, keeping the architectural details sharp and interesting for the viewers.
My warm regards,

Cette lumière d'orage crée une superbe atmosphère mettant en valeur le pont est l'église. Lors de ma dernière visite ici (en 2005!) c'est cette vision que j'ai eu en passant sur le pont et qui m'avait enchanté.
