This tour took inspiration from a recent outstanding research by Gloria Vallese about a new interpretation of the lesser arch of the main XIII century portal of Saint Mark’s Basilica. This arch could represent stars and constellations of the celestial sphere, not only according to the Western tradition, but also to other traditions of the World.

What’s in this Tour

The images carved in the portal of Saint Mark’s Basilica will be our arrival point. We will reach them following a route between Castello and San Marco districts, starting from the famous old Arsenale (the historical shipyard), with a stop at the Contarini del Bovolo staircase (with its outstanding view on the city skyline), discovering the multicultural heritage of Venice under a different perspective, i.e, through the eyes of merchants and travelers coming to and departing from here.
