More on the Zens

Just back from Venice, where I located the huge and beautiful but crumbling palazzo from which the Zen brothers set off on their voyages of exploration (or wherein the whole false account was concocted two centuries later, depending  on your point of view).

Here is a picture of the building, and a close-up of the memorial tablet.

I also revisited the church of SS. Giovanni e Paolo, which contains the memorial urn of Marcantonio Bragadin, but this deserves a blog in its own right!
