New Factories

On the edge of the curve drawn by the Grand Canal shortly before the Rialto bridge (coming from the station), these New Factories, built by Sansovino (1486-1570), and rather plain looking, were used for merchandise storage (under the archways with bosses). Upstairs was the commercial court.
