    Burano, Venice, Italy Burano is located about 4 miles from the city of Venice. The colors of the houses are subject to a strict, government-regulated system; one must submit a formal request to paint one’s home, and the government will respond with a specific set of colors acceptable for that particular property. ]

    This is Burano, Italy, a small village situated on the Venetian Lagoon in northern Italy. Burano is known for its exceptional, brightly colored houses. The colors of the houses are based on a system that has been in place since the village’s founding. If one wishes to paint his home, one must send a request to the government.

    BURANO ISLAND, Venice, Italy Years ago, the fishermen painted their houses bright colors so when they were coming home in the fog, they knew whose house was whose. That said, the colors of these houses have been in families for centuries. And, if you want to change the color of your house, you have to send in a request to the government.
