Piazza San Marco, 119, 30124 Venezia VE, Italy. The Procuratie are imposing buildings that rise in Venice, in the Sestiere of San Marco, and that surround Piazza San Marco on three sides. They take their name from the fact that the prosecutors of San Marco used to stay there. They are divided into three wings that almost completely define the part of the square in front of the Basilica of San Marco: the Procuratie Vecchie in the north, the Napoleonic Wing in the west and the Procuratie Nuove in the south. The Procuratie Vecchie extend for 152 meters, from the Clock Tower towards the Napoleonic Wing, with a portico of 50 arches, which correspond to the 100 windows of the two upper floors. Although they are all rounded, the lightness of the openings recalls the Venetian-Byzantine style of the first procuratie, built in the 12th century under the Doge Sebastiano Ziani (visible in the famous painting by Gentile Bellini "The Procession in Piazza San Marco") and intended for to apartments for prosecutors "de Citra", very high magistrates.
