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.
