With the Palazzo di San Marco on the right and the Palazzo Ducale on the left, this painting depicts the annual ceremony of the wedding of the sea and the city of Venice on Ascension Day. The official procession is making its way from the Doge´s Palace to the state barge in red, the ´Bucintoro´, and the Doge´s ceremonial umbrella is just visible in the crowd. The Doge drops a gold ring from the barge to symbolise the marriage of Venice with the sea. The arms of Doge Alvise Pisani, who ruled from 1735-1741, are visible on the ´Bucintoro´.
