Italian (Tranzano circa 1816 – Venice 1862)
A lawyer by trade, Naya's travels took him throughout the Mediterranean for fifteen years before settling in Venice in 1856. Shortly after he opened a studio on Campo S. Maurizio, he collaborated with Carlo Ponti on Vedute di Venezia, 1866. Architectural studies of Italian structures and art objects were his focus. He employed others to shoot for him and bought views from foreign agents. Naya's work was exhibited widely, and upon his death he left a flourishing business.
