Elegance portrayed below home of the sagacious


Alongside Biblioteca Marciana,  St Mark’s Square,  Venice,  November 2017

This great Renaissance building dates back to the middle of the sixteenth century.  The library is home to a vast array of ancient manuscripts, plus over a million printed books. The reading rooms are located on the first floor but the entrances below have grand statues at their doorways and inside their lobbies.
