Piazza San Marco is not only the heart and the symbol of Venice, but also one of the most important and famous squares of the Italian peninsula to the point of being known with the nickname of the drawing room of Europe.
Piazza San Marco is the only urban space in Venice that is called “piazza” (square), while the others remaining areas are called “campi”. The monumental zone has a trapezoidal shape and it is divided into three sections: the Square, the Piazzetta San Marco and the Piazzetta dei Leoncini. The current shape is the result of continuous works: the square was originally born as a big garden, called Morso because the terrain was harder than the surroundings, and it was crossed by the canal Batario. Only with the beginning of the building of Saint Mark’s Basilica and the arriving of the patron saint’s relics, the area got the function of hosting the principle activities both political and religious of Venice.
