Venezianischer Schornstein - camino veneziano - [4]

Chimneys There are around 7000 chimneys in Venice but in the 1.500Jh. there were 10.357. Many roofs back then were made from straw making fires a common problem. For this reason chimneys were designed with a backwards shaped flue and a cone shaped trunk which obstructed and allowed sparks to cool down. Many chimneys were decorated and painted.
