This Venetian architecture in Messina, Italy, pleasantly surprised me. It reflects the classic style that began in Venice during the 14th century including the Gothic arches plus Byzantine and Moorish elements. You would expect this was a palazzo along the Grand Canal. Instead, the building is wedged inside a gate on a triangle of land overlooking the Fountain of Neptune. I could not learn anything about it. If you know, please send me an email with the details.
