Piazza San Marco, 30124 Venezia VE, Italy


Piazza San Marco, 30124 Venezia VE, Italy The Clock Tower is a Renaissance building located in Piazza San Marco. Leo seems to look down on us, the tower is full of symbols and history, a building that is second to none in Piazza San Marco, perhaps apparently less showy but surprising for its rich historical content. The clock face is in gold and blue enamel; marks time, day, moon phases and zodiac. The clock is also equipped with a carillon mechanism, traditionally activated only in the days of Epiphany and Ascension. At each stroke of the hours, the side panel of the hours opens to let pass a carousel of wooden statues representing the characters of the Nativity and the Magi. The statues, dragged by a tracking mechanism along with the semi-circular platform above the dial, then re-enter the Tower through the side panel of the minutes located on the opposite side of the clock. In this photo, you don't see the upper part, which there are in other photos, but the thing that I wanted to clearly highlight the clock, but the lion symbol of Venice that looks at us.
