The Nobles’ Hangout (or Your Next Place to Shop)

This image caught my eye as I crossed the bridge just before the Campo San Barnaba.

I went inside to see what it had to offer. The owner, Stefano, was welcoming and friendly. What an eye for design he has! This is the Casin dei Nobili in Dorsoduro, just near Campo San Barnaba. The name refers to the “casino” or small rooms that nobles used for informal gatherings.

Have you seen this sculpture elsewhere? It’s on the side of the church of Santa Maria Formosa.
Here is the view from inside the shop back to the bridge I was standing on.
