“L’acqua è coro, è corale. E’ la stessa acqua che ha portato i crociati, i mercanti, le reliquie di San Marco,

i turchi, galee, galeoni, galeotte, galeazze, navi da carico, da guerra, da diporto; e soprattutto,

ha riflesso l’immagine di chiunque abbia vissuto o anche solo soggiornato in questa città…”.

(Josif Brodskij-Fondamenta degli Incurabili, 1989)

In a journey through ancient ports and zones marked by wild nature, plowing sod that marked the passage of ancient people, you get to that wonderful city, Venice.

The most famous of Venice's Piazza San Marco, the 'only place in the center defined precisely as the square while all other smaller markets in the town center lies the definition of fields or squares. At the center of the square we find the Basilica of San Marco, colored gold and covered with mosaics that tell the history of the city. Above the main door, you will find the four bronze horses of Constantinople, transported here after the crusade of 1204.

Next to the Basilica, is the Palazzo Ducale, to join the two buildings the Door of the Charter, now out of the museum of the Ducal Palace, which houses the works of the best Venetian artists, while the library Sansoviniana, which is always inside houses numerous temporary exhibitions. Always to see the Hall of the Great Council, the Bridge of Sighs, the prisons.

In front of the Palazzo Ducale, is the bell tower of San Marco, built in 1173 as a beacon for sailors and restored by Bartolomeo Bon in the fifteenth century. After the collapse of 14 July 1902 was entirely built.
