A typical tourist view of Venice by this artist, whose dates vary somewhat in different sources.
Born in Naples, he followed the example of his father and teacher Alceste Campriani (1848-1933), a contemporary of De Nittis.
Giovanni appears to be documented mainly between 1902 and 1910. Comparable works appear regularly on the Italian art market.
