The Da Vinci Code Quest on Google - Day 12 of 24

Geography Challenge 2

After the puzzle is done, you're confronted with the following question. "By adding some PIZAZZ to A NOVEL IDEA and rearranging the letters, you'll get the location of a museum in this eternal city. What is the name of the city?"

Obviously PIZAZZANOVELIDEA is an anagram of something. My first thought was it must be somewhere in Italy since Italian is the only language I know that pretty much has a 'Z' in every word or sentence unlike the language I grew up with, Swedish, which has pretty much no zees at all, anywhere, except in perhaps some multi-variable calculus book. Anyway, Italy makes you think of Rome, but before I typed in Rome I wanted to try to decipher the anagram by using the ajax enabled anagram solver I had been working on since the beginning of the quest (I knew there would be anagrams). The web page doesn’t give a full list of anagrams but cuts it off at 50 anagrams, and I was too lazy to sit around and wait for solver to go through the 2*1013 big search space of permutations (actually the search tree is pruned significantly by using a dictionary) on my local computer. Anyways...much easier to just type in Rome and hope for the best...

PALAZZO DI VENEZIA is the anagram. The Greek cross is filled in with red below. It took me some time to see it, I found it helpful looking at it with a scaled down version of the image, as the one above where it is really obvious.
