"The Secret Watcher"

Photographer  ‑  Frank Carroll
This photograph taken from Ponte de le Pignate looks towards Hotel Bonvecchiati which was once a palazzo of the same name. To the author, the figure in the hotel window seemed to hold a mysterious connection with those in the gondola, hence the title. The bridge once carried a pots and pans shop and also sold crockery, all manufactured by the Pignateri .
