This year’s exclusive Venice in Peril Christmas card features an Angel, one of four statues placed around the Trinity Cloister Wellhead.
The Angel and the Wellhead with its imposing arch and statuary are by Francesco Penso, known as Cabianca (1665-1737). To mark the 50th Anniversary of Venice in Peril an appeal for £100,000 has been launched to restore them. It is the first wellhead adopted by Venice in Peril and the paving – which is an important part of the water-gathering design – will also be restored. You can read more about the project here
