The marbles, pillars, the famous 4 bronze horse statues are all some of the valuables that were looted from Constantinople in the 13th century in the Fourth Crusade and are now found in the renowned main square of Venice, San Marco Piazza.
The Zanni mask is rather similar to the medico della peste Venetian mask in that it has a long beak-like nose, and it also is a recurrent mask that you can see when you are in Venice on vacation over the holiday period.
It is very easy for the San Marco Square to get flooded during storms and heavy rain due to the fact that it is situated not so high above the sea level!
Hopefully it won’t be so severe when you visit Venice during the winter holidays!
The main Venetian staples are fish, rice, and of course, polenta!
Pasta and pizza originate from Italy and have been recently added to the restaurants’ menus for increased diversity as well as due to their popularity.
