The Bell Tower, the unforgettable shape of Venice's St. Marks Square

It rises alone to a height of 96 metres. It was rebuilt in 1912 after its sudden collapse on the morning of the 14 July 1902. At the base of the bell-tower is the marble Loggetta, the splendid work of Jacopo Sansovino (1540), decorated with bronzes. It was the meeting place for noblemen in ancient times.
