Scala Contarini del Bovolo is hidden in a maze of narrow intricate streets, not easy to find. Following calle dei Fuseri and calle Vida, at number 4.299 there is this spiral staircase built by Giovanni Candi in 1499. Btw, bovolo menas snail.
It is interesting to note the symmetrical repetition of the tracery of arches resting on columns which recalls the arches of the various storeys of the building.
