Campenile di San Marco Landmark of Venice
Hello Minecraft fans today I would like to present you a replica of the most famous bell tower of Venice the Campenile di San Marco or also called Markus Tower. It also has a tragic history.
The beginning of the construction of the tower is between 888 and 911 and, after several interruptions, was completed under the Doge Tribuno Memmo
completed from 979 to 991.
The top floor with the still visible sound arcade made of burnt clay was added in 1178 and built by the
brothers Pietro and Giovanni Bassilio in 1329.
In 15 10 the spire was added and in 1517 a wooden statue of the Archangel Gabriel made of gilded copper sheet was added.
Construction time is about 629 years
Earthquakes and lightning strikes caused repeated damage to the tower and made restoration work necessary.
On 14 July 1902 the tower collapsed because the metal anchors had been removed in order to install an elevator. On the same day, the Venice City Council decided to rebuild the tower where and how it was.
Reconstruction began on 25 April 1903 and ended on Marcus Day, 25 April 1912.
Access to the bell tower via the big city gate
The sound arcades and above the Markus lion, the landmark of Venice
The forecourt is designed with the pattern of the Markus Platz
Entrance to the tower and behind it the clock tower
Entrance area with the stairs and water elevator, because there were unfortunately no pictures of the inside area I designed it myself.

The big bell, in the original there are several bells but unfortunately this was not possible.

Should there be any questions about design technicalities

So in the sense have fun while rebuilding
