Fondamenta Ca’ Balà



Sixteenth-century house with a large hall on the first floor which acted as living room and passage-way onto which the other rooms give. The windows right at the edge of the walls are balanced by the vertical line of the chimney stack. The house was once covered with frescoes and there are still some traces visible.

“Fondamenta” means “foundation” in Italian, and it describes the walking bank along a canal. It was (and still is today) a popular area to load and unload boats, just like a dock.

This Fondamenta is very close to the Salute Church, on  of the most famous churches in Venice. You can see the palace on Google Street View here:

The colors used are acrylic (non-toxic color and indelible). The paper is acid-free, chlorine and neutral pH.

This item is individually made by hand in my studio in Venice – there may be slight variations in color, making this a unique, one-of-a-kind piece of art. The artwork may look slightly different from photos. Small imperfections or irregularities add to the handmade charm, distinguishing this piece from mass-produced prints
