Venice, 1635, Venetia, Merian, Bird’s Eye View Map



Venice in the 1600s — a panoramic, perspective bird’s-eye view, depicting in great detail the Floating City with its canals and individual buildings, the harbor, and the islands of Giudecca and San Giorgio Maggiore in the foreground. The islands of the Venetian Lagoon are shown in the background, including San Secondo, Murano, San Giacomo in Palude, Mazzorbo, Torcello, Burano, etc. The Italian coastline is visible on the horizon. The author, Matthaeus Merian the Elder, adorned the map with the coat of arms of the Venetian Republic, featuring the Winged Lion of Saint Mark, which over the centuries has endured as the ultimate symbol of Venice.
