The fog had now risen, making the Bridge of Sighs even more mysterious. The Bridge of Sighs, is one of the most photographed magical places in Venice, every time I am in Venice I take more than one photo, from any angle the photo is magical. From the Bridge of Sighs, it emerges that the name, at the time of the Serenissima, would have been attributed to the fact that through the prisoners they sighed because they were aware of the fact that it would be the last time, before being imprisoned, that they would see the outside world. As far as the history of the Bridge of Sighs is concerned, this is a fanciful reconstruction since, in reality, the outside is not visible from the bridge.

Doge's Palace Venice, Piazza San Marco 1, Venezia, Venice, Sestière di San Marco, Veneto, Italy I have always been a great admirer of the director and actor since he was a child of Orson Welles.

In my photos, in my small way, I am influenced by his shots, so much so as to dedicate this photo to him, an emblematic image of how Orson Welles in his Othello showed Venice and the Palazzo Ducale.

Piazza Peretti, Grottammare Alta, Grottammare, Riviera delle Palme, Province of Ascoli Piceno, AP, Marches, Italy Felice Piergentile Peretti was born in Grottammare, a small fishing village in the southern Marche, then in the jurisdiction of Fermo As Pope, he energetically rooted out corruption and lawlessness across Rome and launched a far-sighted rebuilding program that continues to provoke controversy, as it involved the destruction of antiquities. Another curiosity that links Sixtus V to the Roman "vulgate": with his tax reform, not trusting the local officials, the pope recruited his trusted fellow-countrymen from the Marche to exercise the profession of the collector.
