Venice's fun fact: characters carved in the arches of Palace Cemerlenghi

Venice fun fact:
Nobody believed the it was possible to build the Rialto Bridge out of stone. It was a common phrase for a man to say “It will be constructed when I have 3 legs” or a woman to say that she would set herself on fire if the construction were ever completed. From these two proverbs, today you can see these two characters carved in the arches of the building besides the bridge, the Palace Camerlenghi: a man with 3 legs and a woman sitting on a flaming brazier!
From Venice With love,
