I spent some time in Venice this Summer, and found some interesting type here and there.

We stayed in the hotel Bologna in Mestre, which had some type dotted about:

the bathroom window (or half of them):

Did you go and see the prints on display in the "Museo Correr"? Beutiful stuff - but they just wouldn't let me take photographs :(
That was my first real-life encounter with a letterpressed fim-ligature (16th century S. Occhi IIRC, don't have my notes at hand right now).
