107 Pantaleone, Church of St.
Said to contain a Paul Veronese; otherwise of no importance.
108 Paternian, Church of St.
Its little leaning tower forms an interesting object, as the traveler sees it from the narrow canal which passes beneath the Porte San Paternian. The two arched lights of the belfry appear of very early workmanship, probably of the beginning of the thirteenth century.
109 Pesaro, Palazzo
on the Grand Canal.
110 Piazzetta, pillars of
these two magnificent blocks of marble, brought from St. Jean d' Acre, which form one of the principal ornaments of the Piazzetta, are Greek sculpture of the sixth century, and will be described in my folio work.
111 Pietro, Church of St.
Its pictures, once valuable, are not hardly worth examination, having been spoiled by neglect.
112 Pietro di Castello, Church of St.
It is said to contain a Paul Veronese, and I suppose the so-called "Chair of St. Peter" must be worth examining.
113 Pisani, Palazzo
on the Grand Canal.
114 Pisani, Palazzo
at St. Stefano.
115 Polo, Church of St.
Of no importance, except as an example of the advantages accruing from restoration. M. Lazari ways of it, "Before this church was modernized, its principal chapel was adorned with mosaics, and possessed a pala of silver gilt, of Byzantine workmanship, which is now lost."
116 Polo, Square of St
(Campo San Polo.)
117 Polo, Palazzo
at San G. Grisostomo (the House of Marco Polo)
119 Priuli, Palazzo
A most important and beautiful early Gothic palace, at San Severo; the main entrance is from the Fondamento San Severo, but the principal facade is on the other side, towards the canal. The entrance has been grievously defaced, having had winged lions filling the spandrils of its pointed arch, of which only feeble traces are now left; the facade has very early fourth-order windows in the lower story, and, above, the beautiful range of fifth-order windows drawn at the bottom of Plate XVIII. Vol. II., where the heads of the fourth-order range are also seen (note their inequality, the larger one at the flank). This palace has two most interesting traceried angle windows also, which, however, I believe are later than those on the facade; and, finally, a rich and bold interior staircase.
120 Procuratie Nuove
Vecchie: A graceful series of buildings, of late fifteenth century design, forming the northern side of St. Mark's Place, but of no particular interest.
