Domenico Bollani was an important official of the Serenissima.  Ambassador to London in those same years of Daniele Barbaro, later mayor and then bishop in Brescia.

It was the city of Udine, where I worked for the Antonini family, that asked me for a celebratory bow capable of expressing a sense of gratitude towards Venice, and in particular towards Lieutenant Bollani, who had managed the plague emergency in those years very well '56.

The lion of Marciano would have dominated a sturdy ashlar portal, which from Piazza Contarena leads to the ascent to the Castle, the fortress rebuilt by the Venetians forty years earlier, after Patriarchs of Aquileia.
