Photography from the early years of 1900. Since 1886 the city of Venice was subject to numerous urban interventions that are focused on San Marco.  The work director was engineer and architect Federico Berchet, haunted by the awful conditions of the bell tower,  but despite the complaints of Giacomo Boni and Luigi Vendrasco a commission declared stable tower. Unfortunately, the situation rapidly deteriorated. On July 11, 1902 Berchet contacted the engineer Pietro Saccardo, inviting him to write as soon as possible architect Rupolo who followed the developments of the bell tower. On 14 July at 09:47 in the morning the bell tower of San Marco collapsed on itself leaving only a pile of rubble 20 meters high. In this retro picture it’s possible to see  that the basilica remained unscathed fortunately thanks to the south west notice column that stopped the avalanche of debris.
