The Clock Tower is part of a larger building. Built between 1496 and 1499 by the architect M. Codussi, the arch below connects St. Mark’s Square with the Mercerie. The quadrants of the gold and blue enamel clock now marks the day, the lunar phases, the signs of the zodiac. The Clock is equipped with a music box of statues depicting the nativity and is activated only on the day of Epiphany. At the top are the Venice Moors playing 5 minutes before and after the exact time.
