About This Image
With Naya's number out of the negative (127) A beautiful image of women sewing and mending. Chioggia is a small town on the extreme south of the Venetian Lagoon. It has an important harbor and extensive fisheries. It was ruined and subjugated by the Genoese during their war with the Venetians, but was freed by the Venetian general Zeno (1378-81), and soon flourished under the rule of Venice. It is still a part of the Venice province.
