Piazza San Marco

Piazza San Marco, Venice, Italy

St. Markus Square (Italian Piazza San Marco) is the most important and famous square in Venice.
It is the only square in the city that bears the name piazza. The other places of Venice are called campi (from ital. campo 'the field') because they were not originally paved.

The part between the Doge's Palace (right), Bibliotic (left) and the lagoon is called Piazzetta San Marco (View point), which starts with the Campanile (tower). The Piazzetta (small square, from Italian piazza, "square") is dominated by the two columns, the Venice city saint Markus (Marco) and Theodorus (Todaro); on the columns are therefore the lion of St. Mark or the San Todaro statue (posing with Todaro on a crocodile). State guests were received here and executions were carried out, but gamblers also went about their business here.

Since the course rises only slightly above sea level, it is flooded again and again during floods. The square, like almost the entire city centre, is a single large pedestrian zone. The "most beautiful ballroom in Europe", as Napoleon called it.
It is lined with magnificent facades and populated by many tourists, locals and the well-known pigeons. The "Café Florian" (left in the picture) prides itself as the oldest coffee house in the world.
That will probably be true, because it has been around since 1720, and Goethe, Wagner and Thomas Mann have demonstrably already been pampered there. But even more than the restaurants and bars, the classic backdrops characterize St. Mark's Square in Venice.
The square dates back to the 9th century, when a small open space was created in front of a modest St. Mark's Church. Since that time, it has been the place for the announcements and state acts of the city administration as well as for the numerous festivals of the population, for example, the Carnival of Venice.

It received its present size after 1156 by filling the course of the river in the west and a ship pier, which was located between the square and the Doge's Palace. Between 1172 and 1178 it was extended to the west under the Doge Sebastiano Ziani and it appeared as early as 1177. From 1267 the square was paved. In 1340 it was decided to rebuild the Doge's Palace, which was rebuilt in its old form after the devastating fire of 1577.

Print only

Our photographic prints are created using a specialty, large-format fine art printer designed to produce archival, museum-grade prints. They are true "chromogenic" prints: light-sensitive paper exposed in a darkroom using state-of-the-art lasers to produce the sharpest possible image. Click on the icons below to learn more or click here to explore further.

Our photographic prints are available in one of two finishes: glossy and lustre. Glossy prints have a rich, silky saturation and are great for environments where the lighting and reflections have been carefully thought through. Lustre prints have a bright, sparkle-like finish that diffuses reflections and are therefore more versatile for environments where the lighting and reflections are less under your control.

Your print comes with two certificates of authenticity hand-signed by the artist and the printmaker: one that you will affix to the finished piece and one that remains standalone. Additionally, your print's provenance is tracked and verified using state-of-the-art digital technology. Learn more.
