St Mark’s Clocktower – Venice
This extraordinarily elaborate timepiece, known also as St Mark’s Clocktower or the Moors’ Clocktower, displays the time
of day, the dominant sign of Zodiac and the current phase of the moon.
Both the tower and the clock date from the last decade of the 15th century, though the mechanism of the clock has subsequently been altered. It was placed where the clock
would be visible from the waters of the lagoon and give notice to everyone of the wealth and glory of Venice.
