Canaletto’s viewpoint can be located precisely, standing against the north-west corner of the Palazzo Ducale. The Campanile runs up the left side of the composition, with awnings against the Loggetta at its base. On the right is the narthex (vestibule) of San Marco, beyond which the arcades of the Procuratie Vecchie recede into the distance.
