Campanile di San Marco

Simbol Venice, Italy

Venice's Skyscraper Campanile di San Marco

The impressive structure of the St Mark’s Bell Tower in Venice - and its great height – gives the profile of Venice an unmistakable symbol of greatness: the St Mark’s Campanile in Venice overlooks the entire city and the surrounding lagoon, allowing those who climb it, particularly on bright days, to enjoy far-reaching views that extend almost as far as the Alps. Built with the purpose of serving as a beacon for sailors of the lagoon, the original Piazza San Marco Bell Tower was built on Roman foundations - probably a watch tower - and completed in 1173. In the history of science, the Campanile in St Mark’s Square in Venice reached its moment of glory in 1609 when Galileo proved right here the effectiveness of his telescope.
