Piazza San Marco

1,785 MEGAPIXEL VAST PHOTO
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.

VAST Print™

A VAST Print™ represents the pinnacle of the photographic medium. Each print is a true photograph created specifically for you using light-sensitive paper exposed in a darkroom with the industry's highest precision exposure technique. Your print is then sealed with a shine-enhancing protective glossy coating*, adhered to a sturdy aluminum composite backing, and finished in one of two ready-to-hang formats:

  • Frameless floating display: A hidden mounting brace on the rear gracefully "floats" the print off the wall for a sleek, modern look.
  • Framed display: The print is mounted inside one of our handcrafted 100% wood frames with a decorative separation between the print and the frame so that the print appears to be floating within the frame, providing depth and elegance to the finished photo.

*Note: a non-glossy, satin matte coating is alternatively available on request.
