The Piazza looking north-west with the narthex of San Marco


RCIN 401037

An official is reading from a document at the Pietra del Bando, a truncated porphyry column at the corner of the narthex (porch) of San Marco, from where official proclamations were made. A section of the Campanile was overpainted here, to concentrate the weight on the right side of the composition.
