In Venice you can not avoid looking at people’s wash. Some hang out all their clothes and some are more restrictive.
But isn’t an art?
I think people tend to wear clothes in colors that fit with their building’s colors…
While in Venice I found the book “The Politics Of Washing – Real life in Venice”. It is a great book about everyday life in one of the worlds most visited city.
And here is my Venice map. Can give you some ideas about where to go and not to go.
