  8. 8. VENICE – View St Mark's Clocktower The Clock Tower is an early renaissance building on the north side of the Piazza San Marco at the entrance to the Merceria. It is comprised of a tower, which contains the clock, and lower buildings on each side. It adjoins the eastern end of the Procuratie Vecchie. Both the tower and the clock date from the last decade of the 15th century, though the mechanism of the clock has subsequently been much altered.
  9. 9. VENICE – View of “Il Piazzetta di San Marco” (The ‘Little Piazza‘) The Piazzetta di San Marco is an open space extension of the Piazza connecting the south side of the Piazza to the waterway of the lagoon. The Piazzetta lies between the Doge's Palace on the east and Jacopo Sansovino's Libreria which holds the Biblioteca Marciana on the west. It is open to the lagoon at the mouth of the Grand Canal where two tall columns bearing symbols of Venice's two patrons, St Mark and St Theodore, stand facing the water's edge.

View of “Campanile di San Marco” (St Mark's Campanile) St Mark's Campanile (Campanile di San Marco in Italian) is the bell tower of St Mark's Basilica in Venice, Italy, located in the square (piazza) of the same name. It is one of the most recognizable symbols of the city. •The tower is 98.6 metres (323 ft) tall, and stands alone in a corner of St Mark's Square, near the front of the basilica. •It has a simple form, the bulk of which is a fluted brick square shaft, 12 metres (39 ft) wide on each side and 50 metres (160 ft) tall, above which is a loggia surrounding the belfry, housing five bells. •The belfry is topped by a cube, alternate faces of which show the Lion of St. Mark and the female representation of Venice (la Giustizia: Justice). •The tower is capped by a pyramidal spire, at the top of which sits a golden weathervane in the form of the archangel Gabriel. •The campanile reached its present form in 1514. The current tower was reconstructed in its present form in 1912 after the collapse of 1902.

  53. 53. Views of “il Colosseo” (The Colosseum) The Colosseum, originally known as the Flavian Amphitheatre (Latin: “Amphitheatrum Flavium”, or Italian “Anfiteatro Flavio”), is an elliptical amphitheatre in the centre of Rome, Italy, the largest ever built in the Roman Empire. It is considered one of the greatest works of Roman architecture and Roman engineering.
  54. 54. Views from the Inside of The Colosseum Capable of seating 50,000 spectators, the Colosseum was used for gladiatorial contests and public spectacles such as mock sea battles, animal hunts, executions, re-enactments of famous battles, and dramas based on classical mythology. The building ceased to be used for entertainment in the early medieval era. It was later reused for such purposes as housing, workshops, quarters for a religious order, a fortress, a quarry, and a Christian shrine.

The building is circular with a portico of three ranks of huge granite Corinthian columns (eight in the first rank and two groups of four behind) under a pediment opening into the rotunda, under a coffered, concrete dome, with a central opening (oculus) to the sky. Almost two thousand years after it was built, the Pantheon's dome is still the world's largest unreinforced concrete dome.
