Glamour, Mystery, and Whispers of the Past – Palazzino Alvisi Is Pure Venetian Drama

Immerse yourself in a world of old-style glamour with a stay in one of Venice’s most spectacular private rentals.

Perched above the iconic Grand Canal, only a short stroll of St. Mark’s Square, art-filled Palazzino Alvisi offers memorable accommodation in 4 timelessly elegant bedrooms adorned with evocative stucco ceilings and speckled terrazzo floors. Although recently renovated by conservation architect Andrea Gaggia, the decor remains hauntingly Venetian, with opulent chandeliers, stunning antiques, and walls draped in precious silks.

The historical property is available for private rental four weeks a year and comes with spectacular reception rooms, a delightfully traditional kitchen, and a magical terrace facing the dramatic Basilica of Santa Maria della Salute.

Stiff Pose Victorian Postmortem photography (140 Pics)

Postmortem photography or memento mori, the photographing of a deceased person, was a common practice in the 19th and early 20th centuries. The photographs were considered a keepsake to remember the dead. Child mortality was high during the Victorian era. For many children even a common sickness could be fatal. When a child or other family member died, families would often have a photograph taken before burial. Many times it was the first and last photograph they would ever possess of their loved one. Many postmortem photographs were close-ups of the face or shots of the full body. The deceased were usually depicted to appear as if they were in a deep sleep, or else arranged to appear more life-like. Children were often shown on a couch or in a crib, often posed with a favorite toy. It was not uncommon to photograph very young children with a family member, most frequently the mother. Adults were more commonly posed in chairs or even propped up on something.
