Campo dei Mori

This peaceful square is adorned with unusual statues (13C) with enigmatic expressions on their faces. They are said to represent the Mastelli brothers, a family of merchants. The Venetians used to hang satirical comments addressed to local politicians from the iron nose of one of the statues. The house where Tintoretto lived and died in 1594 can be seen at no 3399.
