This is the back of Ca' Dario, on the Grand Canal,
immortalized most famously by Monet. Some say this house
is cursed, and it's true that its various owners have known
more than their share of bankruptcy and untimely death—most
from suicide or murder. There was a rumor that Woody Allen
was interested in purchasing this 15th-century palazzo—
until he learned its history. Maybe he's superstitious.
