Nietzsche in Venice!

Venice is full of history. Here is a tidbit

The German philosopher (Friedrich Nietzsche) lived in the 1600-built Palazzo Berlendis—set on the Fondamente Nuove by the feet of the Mendicanti bridge on the northern border of the city—between 1880 and 1887 and penned Thus Spoke Zarathustra here.

Yes, it appears that this unit is for sale. The exterior is a bit stern

Not so bad for a mere philosopher. What do you think?
