The artillery shell hit Palazzo Albrizzi during the Revolution of 1848-1849.
It was later mounted on the wall with an inscription by Gabriele d'Annunzio, who proclaimed
"eternal enmity" toward the Austrians.
Palazzo Albrizzi is located in a campiello Albrizzi....San Polo.
Location of Campiello Albrizzi on map.

As Venice marches thru time...and dwellings take on new dimensions and uses.
Palazzi changing from grand, single-family dwellings to multi-family homes....what do you do?
You don't tear down ~ THANK GOD~ you block off.
Sometimes very creatively!!
This is one of my favorite...located in Cannaregio. I wonder if it
had been bricked in and modern day owners decided to remove the bricks
to make a display case.
Who knew that bricks come in such a wild assortment!
This is one that I'd love to see its original life!!
In the first of these two photos taken in Castello....you hardly notice the window on the right...
great job of blending.....
In the San Marco sestiere....on my way to the Fortuny Museum.
I haven't spotted another fill-in quite like it.
Thumbs up for originality!
Spotted this one in a courtyard of a hotel in Santa Croce.
