On a quiet backstreet in Venice where few tourists go, it's the day to do the laundry. Colorful clothing is pulled out on lines to dry in the warm air. Warm colors of gold, orange, crimson and green highlight this freely painted canvas.

Venice is a city in northeastern Italy and the capital of the Veneto region. It is situated across a group of 118 small islands that are separated by canals and linked by bridges, of which there are 400. The islands are located in the shallow Venetian Lagoon, an enclosed bay that lies between the mouths of the Po and the Piave Rivers. Parts of Venice are renowned for the beauty of their settings, their architecture, and artwork. The lagoon and a part of the city are listed as a World Heritage Site.
