  • A somewhat inconspicuous lyrised one was immortalized here with her mortar, who allegedly thwarted the takeover in the 14th century by dropping the mortar from the window, thus killing the rebel flag bearer. Beautiful legend, does it really have anything to do with reality?

  • Leaving St. Mark's Square through the clock's haberdashery, you can see a sculpture representing "the vecia of mortel". In 1310 a conspiracy against the government of the serene was about to take place, an old woman approached the window to snoop and unintentionally dropped a mortar that killed one of the conspirators, who believing they had been discovered withdrew.
