Snowfall in Venice

snowfall in venice by BrunoRosso 1965

This beautiful photo of Piazza San Marco was taken by Bruno Rosso in 1965. It's now part of the collection of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. You can see a larger image here.

I love the mood of this photo. I've never experienced snow in Venice - I hope to some day. A Lover of Venice has a magical trip through Snow-covered Venice on his site (so glad that ALoV is back on line!).

Hope everyone is having a nice winter without too much extreme cold.

What a lovely romantic photo :) I hope you get your wish to experience the snow in Venice. Here it is sunny, but very cold today .. good day to stay indoors :)

Hi Annie, that photo is stunning. I love the lone individual with the umbrella walking across the snow covered Piazza. Beautiful.

Thanks so much for sharing this wonderful photo and the links.

The closest we came was when we arrived in 2012. There was snow all over the ground. Had we arrived the day before I imagine that the view the night before in San Marco would have been similar.
