People who died in Venice

People often say they'll see Venice and die. It's interesting to query, and find out who did.

Robert Browning, Richard Wagner, Giovanni Bellini, Antonio Lotti, Francesco Cavalli, Claudio Monterverdi, Ezra Pound, Titian, Paolo Veronese, Marco Polo, Aldus Manutius, Serge Diaghilev, Peggy Gugenheim ...

Of course, the list of people who were buried in Venice (or its Isola di San Michele Cemetery) is different, and includes Igor Stravinsky, Nobel Prize winning writer Joseph Brodsky, and perhaps even St. Mark.
