Description

A tower has stood on this spot in Venice since the 10th century. The present campanile is a reproduction of a brick structure by renaissance master builder Bertola Bon which collapsed suddenly in 1912. Notice the incredible amount of traffic in the Canale di San Marco. Venice must be one of the few cities where the traffic control of the waterways is as complex and worrisome as the air traffic controller at the airport! While I was taking this hand-held panorama, the bells tolled out the hour after a deafening fanfare! I thought the tower would be vibrating, but it seemed to take the tolling in stride. The island at centre is Isola di San Giogio Maggiore, to the South.
