Standing on a bridge overlooking the Rio Fuseri,
I took this photo of a water taxi and a gondola passing by something unique to Venice. This small step or porch was an official entry point for the building on the left; probably it was used both by visitors and deliveries - both coming by boat. On that afternoon it was being used to advertise the negozio, which appeared to be a dress shop.
I don't know whether they were expecting customers to arrive by boat that day. My guess is that they were advertising to people as they crossed the bridge.
"My guess is that they were advertising to people as they crossed the bridge." and when people pass by on a gondola or water taxi :-)
Good point Nereo.
What do Venetians call this little "doorstep" along the canal?
I don't think there's a name for those kind of doorsteps or tiny docks. I'll ask Enzo or Vittorio ...
