San Nicolò dei Mendicoli

Pumpfix under the crucifix.

In Venice’s Dorsoduro district is the church of San Nicolò dei Medicoli, built in the 13th century. The ceilings of the church are decorated with drawings by painters of the Veronese school and gilded arches span marble columns to the altar at the end of the aisle. After the church was badly damaged by a flood, numerous renovations were necessary. The floor was raised by 30 cm to protect the church from flooding and seven existing drainage points were upraded to the most modern standard with the backwater pumping station Pumpfix S.
