Photographer's Note

Last week I spent in the amazing city of Venice. With its canals, charming small streets and wonderful old architecture it's for sure one of the most beautiful places I've ever seen.

Here is a view on Ca’ Corner della Regina which is considered the first architectural example to introduce non-Baroque parameters as dominant themes, even if some elements of the prior style remain. Built between 1724 and 1728 by Domenico Rossi for the Corner family of San Cassiano atop the ruins of the palazzo in which Caterina Corner—future queen of Cyprus—was born, it displays an architecture stylistically reminiscent of Baldassare Longhena’s nearby Ca’ Pesaro, the current venue of the Galleria Internazionale d’Arte Moderna.
