Summary expansion
Six of the large albumen prints are interior and exterior views of the Basilica di San Marco in Venice, including shots of the facade, the bronze doors, main altar and side chapels. There are several photographs of the Palazzo Ducale: two taken from the Piazza San Marco, one a close-up of a 15th-century carved capitel at the north corner. Also included is a photograph of a painting of the great Sala del Maggior Consiglio. The remaining photographs document church exteriors in Venice, Murano, and Padua, including architectural details of carved figures, columns, and arcades, and the Campo Santo in Pisa. Two of the photographs are signed by Carlo Naya: figure of a lion atop a column in Piazza San Marco, and the Chiesa di San Antonio di Padua
