Do tell!

Thanks to Jean-Antoine Scarpa, whose  Campiello website I have used to identify many of the buildings on this page.  His site uses a map of venice very intelligently as a theme.  An idea to copy for the future.

According to Jean-Antoine, there is a love story behind this palazzo.  A young man´s prospective parents in law rejected him as being too poor.  In revenge, he had this palazzo built, with the instruction that all the window arches should be larger than the doors in his inamorata's house.  It now houses the court of appeal.
