Dali at the Bridge of Sighs

Dali at the Bridge of Sighs

The view from the Bridge of Sighs (the one joining the top floors of the buildings on either side of the canal) was the last view of Venice that convicts saw before their imprisonment. The bridge name, given by Lord Byron as a translation from the Italian "Ponte dei sospiri" in the 19th century, comes from the suggestion that prisoners would sigh at their final view of beautiful Venice through the window before being taken down to their cells.
