Veneto Hidden Corners: the cats of the Venice Civil Hospital

For the weekly column “Veneto Hidden Corners”, the photographer Giovanni Vecchiato gives us exclusively for VS a shot dedicated to the top hidden beauties of Veneto.

One of the less touristic buildings in Venice is certainly the hospital. However, the SS. Giovanni e Paolo is probably one of the most beautiful in the world. The ancient part dates back to the thirteenth century and one of its peculiarities is the colony of cats that inhabit the fascinating internal cloister.

A deep passion for reportage, Giovanni Vecchiato has worked as a portrait photographer in the entertainment industry in London where he recently set up the “View my eye” exhibition, documenting the most suggestive places in Italy through the art of aerial photography, work also published by the National Geographic.
