(b. 1663,. Udine, d. 1730, Venezia)

The Rialto Bridge

Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam

The majority of the 'vedute" based on other representations derive from early eighteenth-century series of prints. The two most important of these are the one hundred and three prints in Le Fabriche, e Vedute di Venetia published by Luca Carlevaris in 1703, and II gran teatro di Venezia probably published by Domenico Lovisa in 1717.

The composition of the etching depicting the Rialto Bridge was borrowed by Marieschi and Canaletto. However, it is noteworthy that the paintings represent the bridge from the opposite direction and opposite side of the canal with respect to the print.
