Venice in the 18th-Century paintings

Luca Carlevarijs (Italian painter, 1663-1730) View of the Molo Venice looking west

Venice

By the bridge I stood
recently in the brown night.
From the distance came the sound of song;
golden drops surged away
over the vibrating surface.

Venezia

Stavo sul ponte,
poco tempo fa, nella notte bruna.
Di lontano giungeva un canto:
gocce d’oro affioravano
sulla superficie vibrante.

Luca Carlevaris (Italian painter, 1663-1730) Piazza San Marco Venice, 1709 | The-Metropolitan Museum of Art

Gondole, luci, musica -
ebbre nuotavano via nel crepuscolo

La mia anima, strumento a corde,
cantò per sé, a un tocco invisibile,

una canzone di gondolieri,
tremando alla variopinta beatitudine.
- L’ha udita qualcuno?


Gondolas, light, music -
drunk, it floated off into the dusk...
My soul, a lute,
unseeably moved, sang
a gondolier's song secretly to itself,
trembling with joyous bliss.
- Did anyone listen to it?

Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche (1844-1900)🎨, "Venedig", appears in "Ecce Homo", 1988

Venedig
(Original text)

An der Brücke stand
jüngst ich in brauner Nacht.
Fernher kam Gesang:
goldener Tropfen quoll′s
über die zitternde Fläche weg.
Gondeln, Lichter, Musik -
trunken schwamm′s in die Dämmerung hinaus...

Meine Seele, ein Saitenspiel,
sang sich, unsichtbar berührt,
heimlich ein Gondellied dazu,
zitternd von bunter Seligkeit.
- Hörte Jemand ihr zu?...
