Fondamenta Malvasia watercolor


Fondamenta de la Malvasia vecchia” is a “street” of Venice in San Marco district, on the way from Campo San Maurizio to San Marco.
The name “Malvasia” comes from an ancient and famous greek wine: Venice had the exclusive right to sell wine throughout Europe. From the 15th century the Malvasia wine became the most important of the Serenissima and  the whole Europe.

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, kind of like a dock. If you want to learn more about the Fondamenta, you can read my blogpost The Venetian “Fondamenta”
