Scala Contarini del Bovolo - Venice, Italy

Scala Contarini del Bovolo

The Scala Contarini del Bovolo (also called Palazzo Contarini Minelli dal Bovolo) is a small palace in Venice. It is hidden away in an obscure little alley known as the Calle della Vida, near the Campo Manin, and was the palace of Contarini family.
The original structure was designed by Giovanni Candi in 1499. The main attraction of this palace is an elegant spiral staircase with a plethora of arches.
The family hired a second architect, Giorgio Spavento, to add the staircase to the original structure...
