In the 1500s, Venice was the capital of publishing and printing, especially San Polo. Walk to Rio Terra Secondo to see the former printing press of Aldo Manuzio, the inventor of italic type (it’s at number 2311 in the palazetto).
Chiesa di San Pantalon
The church is capped by an incredibly intricate painted ceiling by artist Giovanni Antonio Fumiani, who died during its creation and is buried on the property. (39-041) 523-5893.
