 “In questa città le meretrici incedono per le vie come matrone”. 
A Venezia le prostitute erano obbligate a circolare in pubblico con un fazzoletto giallo intorno al collo, come segno di riconoscimento. All'ingresso dei "postribula" regnava la scritta:

L'Ospedale curava i malati ma prestava assistenza anche a pellegrini, orfani, poveri, ravvedute, esiliati, vecchi bisognosi e bambini “proietti”, ossia i figli di nessuno.
