Flashback Friday: The Drawing Room of Europe…

PiazzaSanMarco-1960s

Piazza San Marco as seen in the mid to late 1960s.

In a quote attributed to Napoleon, St. Mark’s Square (Piazza San Marco) is referred to as “the drawing room of Europe.”  Though the impressive origin of this quote is unsubstantiated, it is reflective of the significance placed upon Venice’s principal public square—known to locals simply as “the Piazza.”
