Torre dell’Orologio – Venice Clock tower

Venice Clock Tower – la torre dell’Orologio

Designed by Antonio Lombardo at the end of 1400, the Clock Tower is divided into three orders: the first housing the clock with the zodiacal constellations that stand out on the blue dial, the second where it’s depicted the Virgin and Child, and the third with the winged lion. From the terrace on the top of the building, bronzes beat the bell at the stroke of every hour.
