The dragon and the umbrellas mark the site of Venice's famous Marforio leather goods shop, which traded here from 1875. I couldn't find the date, even an approximate one, for when it closed, but the dragon and these colourful umbrellas remain.
To be precise, this landmark is on the corner of the Marzaria Due Aprile and Marzaria San Salvador.
The Marziaria San Salvador is named for the nearby baroque church of San Salvador.
The plaque on the wall notes that this stretch of street was enlarged in 1884 under the mayorship of Sergio Aligheri.
