Hello Venice _ pt 1

In this post, I will introduce one in front of Piazza San Marco called: Riva degli Schiavoni. In this first image, you see a glimpse of the Venetian part of the city.

It's located in the Castello district and extends along the Basin of San Marco in the stretch from the bridge over the Rio di Palazzo della Paglia, behind the Palazzo Ducale to the Rio Ca 'di Dio.

The bank in fact was an integral part of the commercial port of Venice and is of very great importance due to its proximity to Piazza San Marco and the center of political power in Venice.

The bank was started probably in the ninth century and had a first extension in 1060 with the draining of a wetland area. La Riva was originally much narrower than the current, being little larger than the Bridge of Straw, as also from the tree of Jacopo de 'Barbari of 1500 and countless paintings, prints and engravings. The enlargement of the current size was only resolved in 1780 and completed in 1782, ie for the last years of the Republic of Venice.
