One of Napoleon’s most famous, and easy to notice, alterations to Venice was the destruction of the church of San Geminiano in the “mouth” of the Piazza San Marco, here shown in a painting by Canaletto. He wanted to build a ballroom and the church was in the way. Now the space belongs to the Correr Museum.
