This is a beautiful c.1950 map or city plan of Venice, Italy by Cesare Capello. It covers Venice from Canale Scomenzera to Isola San Pierto and Bacini di Raddobbo and from Isola Della Giudecca to Canal Delle Sacche in the north. The map details streets, canals, parks, islands, transportation lines and a host of other topographical features. The island of Isola di San Michele is also included. An inset in the top right quadrant features the Venetian Lagoon. A 127 page 'artistic illustrated guide' accompanies the map. This includes a variety of useful tourist information, including details about museums, galleries, consulates, festivals, history of Venice, gondola and motor boat services, art in Venice, cultural, sporting and industrial activities and several itineraries for the traveler. The map and guide were published by Cesare Capello in c.1950.
