    Elected to the ducal throne on 30 June 1741, Doge Pietro Grimani is carried out into Piazza San Marco in a float to greet his subjects and scatter newly minted gold coins into the crowd. Dockyard workers wielding long red staffs attempt to hold back the populace jostling for the most promising spots from which to snatch the money. In the foreground, tourists in carnival costume watch the spectacle from makeshift viewing platforms.
