We're looking north from the arcade to the opposing Ca' Pesaro, which is Venice's museum of modern art. Leonardo Pesaro was a procurator of St. Marks who hired the architect Longhena to design something suitably ostentatious: both he and Longhena died in 1682,about 30 years before the building's completion. The building under wraps is the Palazzo Corner della Regina.
