Colours of Burano

Burano is an island in the Venetian Lagoon, northern Italy, like Venice itself, it could more correctly be called an archipelago of four islands linked by bridges. It is situated near Torcello at the northern end of the Lagoon, and is known for its small, brightly painted houses, popular with artists. The colours of the houses follow a specific system originating from the golden age of its development, if someone wishes to paint their home, one must send a request to the government, who will respond by making notice of the certain colours permitted for that lot.
