Venetian Ghetto

View Large On Black


A shot taken at 2.30 AM in the Jewish ghetto of Venice. The Venetian Ghetto was the area of Venice in which Jews were compelled to live under the Venetian Republic. It is from its name in Italian ("ghetto"), that the English word "ghetto" is derived: in the Venetian language it was named "ghèto".
