Italy - Venice statues




Mar. 2012

Venice is not only filled with churches. It also has a lot of statues. I don't know if the story is true, but it seems the second one was built by venitions when Venice was dominated by Austria. The Austrian governement would have asked to turn it a little bit so it doesn't face Austria.
Venice n'est pas emplie que d'églises. Il y a aussi beaucoup de statues. Je ne sais pas si l'histoire est véridique, mais il semble que la seconde ait été construite par le Vénitiens du temps de la domination Autrichienne et que le gouvernement ait alors demandé à ce que cette statue ne soit pas orientée vers l'Autriche.
