Rosalba Zuanna Carriera was born into a modest Venetian family in 1675, but her world was not devoid of images, since her paternal grandfather was a painter and her mother a lacemaker. Her father was steward of the Procurator Bon, equivalent to a clerk.

French children hate soup because most of the soup they get looks like the one below. You’ll not find any tiny pasta alphabets swimming around in French soup. It looks like mush or worse, children say. And it does. It’s anything but the bright, primary colors that would attract a child. But peasants traditionally eat vegetable soup and baguette for dinner every night after a long day in the field.

We discovered this view of the Zitelle church on the island of Giudecca quite by accident when we wandered into the Ca' Giustinian, now the headquarters of the Biennale art fair, near San Marco near San Moisè. The palace is a beautiful example of Venetian Gothic, and was formerly the Hotel de l'Europe where many famous literary and art figures stayed, including Turner, Proust, Ruskin, and Verdi. As you can see, it has an extraordinary terrace bar on the Grand Canal. and is located across the street from the former Ridotto or casino, an effort by the city of Venice to concentrate Venetians' notorious addiction to gambling in a single place instead of in the streets and in private homes.

The Palladian church of Santa Maria della Presentazione, better known as Le Zitelle, meaning "the Spinsters," since the convent here ran a hospice for "beautiful girls" from poor families whose beauty was thought to put them in danger of falling into prostitution. The church was designed by Palladio around 1576 for a different site, but built later by Jacopo Bozzetto from 1581-88.
