Most people may just be interested in the history of families owning or taking over the houses, or perhaps might want to know a history of construction logistics that has been noted for Ca Pescaro at the most.
This work shows various interesting detail options and give rather interesting information about the unique consequences of the Venetian Republic in both its location and its philosophy.
Those interested in the compromises of building housing on a loamy semi-solid base and the thinner walls and altered construction techniques that compensate for possibly shifting 'foundations' that are based on wood pole plantings to make some attempt at a fixed base may find interesting points in construction.
Similarly, the small areas of land available dictated external stairways and central courts rather than yards as well as very narrow passages due to high population density and scarce housing room.
Venice might well have become a setting for the tenements seen in NYC in the early Twentieth Century but for the inability to build more than 4 stories on the material forming the foundations available.
Additional points concern the need for personal housing and business to often be share the same building due to spatial concerns.
Further, the details noted show the need to compromise style to show some individuality while at the same time having a quasi-proletarian appearance. Style variety was limited to certain lesser degrees of display for even those of the upper crust with the exception of the Churches, Scuola and the Doge's Palace.
Architectural design was intended to be flexible and occasionally a bit unique, but within somewhat rigid tolerances of what the collective government felt was not overly showy.
Most books show the pictures of some more prominent houses or Churches, but the nature of different solutions to roofing, entryways or floors is bypassed. Some may feel too much attention is given to these in this work, but it certainly allows somebody seeking details to get the full breadth of variations or to skip past these details.
A clear miss are the maps at the end of the work. The small medallions that contain various numbers, these seemingly intending to highlight locations within the pages of the work are quite difficult to read. The size of the print and the coloration make for uncertain discrimination of what highlight is where.
Another area for more comment might have been with respect to construction about the Jewish Ghetto, mostly housing converted from former use and not either brilliantly designed, nor carefully reworked. The buildings may not have much in particular to say about the best of Venetian Architecture, but they do speak, along with the Synagogues in that district, to the signifcant historical concerns of that area and of the Jewish minority of the city. Having virtually no text to discuss this area seems to show some missing element.
