La Bibbia di San Marco a Venezia
Art, History, and Religion.
Along the exciting vertical journey of aesthetic, cultural, and artistic joy, the Bibbia di San Marco a Venezia offers a close contact with all the mosaics, especially those are at considerable height in the basilica and, therefore, only visible at a great distance.
The Holy Text is linked to the masterpieces of mosaic art that we can touch for the first time thanks to the new and exclusive photographic campaign.
The art of walls, vaults, and domes of the Golden Basilica can be finally admired by observing the details of each work placed by mosaicists who have worked for centuries to the history of Venice. The images of the columns, the Treasure, the Pala d’oro, statues, floors and tapestries complete the definitive work on this great heritage of humanity.
