An overview of the Piazza

The Piazza di San Marco (English:Saint Mark's Square) is a public square located in the San Marco district of Venice.

Occupying the Piazza were many of Venice's most famous and important structures, including the Basilica di San Marco, the Campanile di San Marco, the Palazzo Ducale, and the Torre dell'Orologio.

Description Edit

The Piazza was the focal point of the city, and served as a center of worship due to its proximity to the Basilica and the government (through the Palazzo Ducale). The Piazza opened out onto the Venetian Lagoon, and as such, was the site of a travel booth.

During the Renaissance, the Piazza was also used for executions, with a set of gallows and spectator seating in the center of the square.

Due to its large size and proximity to many important buildings, the Piazza was a common place to hold meetings. As such, the Venetian conspirators met in the square, to discuss their plans to assassinate Doge Giovanni Mocenigo.

Ezio Auditore da Firenze would later rendezvous with Antonio de Magianis in the Piazza, in order to scout out a means to enter the well-guarded Palazzo Ducale, though they would find none.
