It reminds the Venetian Senate decision to build the Chiesa del Redentore (Redeemer’s Church) as an ex-vote for the liberation of the city from the black death of 1575-1577, a plague that caused the death of more than a third of the city’s population in just two years.

When I went to Torcello for the first time, with my girlfriend, I was very sceptical about it. When you arrive there with the ferry-boat, taken from Burano, you have the feeling that there is nothing there, but then you discover that it is … particular and beautiful 🙂
