In order to inform you about the ambiance around the decadent looking dog I add a part of the large painting by Italian Renaissance artist Vittore Carpaccio,The Miracle of the Cross at the Ponte di Rialto, also known as The Healing of the Madman (Italian: Miracolo della Croce a Rialto) dating from c. 1496. It is now housed in the Gallerie dell'Accademia in Venice. The wooden Rialto Bridge looks a bit different from the bridge today, and the vaporetti and other motorboats are now more usual than the gondolas.
(Sorry, I cannot comment and reply on your comments today and tomorrow, because I'll take part in a seminar about literature.)
