Venice: The Libreria, Campanile and Piazzetta from the east


RCIN 907438

The east façade of the Libreria is drawn in a simple elevation. To this Canaletto added at the left a view to Santa Maria della Salute, as if from the south end of the Piazzetta, and at the right a view into the Piazza, as if from the north end of the Piazzetta. This combination of different viewpoints has the effect of greatly expanding the apparent size of the Piazzetta.

    The income from your ticket contributes directly to The Royal Collection Trust, a registered charity. The aims of The Royal Collection Trust are the care and conservation of the Royal Collection, and the promotion of access and enjoyment through exhibitions, publications, loans and educational activities.
