Today Venice turns 1595 !
The legend says that March 25, year 421 is the date of the mythical foundation of the lagoon city, set to become one of the most important cities of Europe and the capital of an authoritative Republic with its own flag, territory, currency and laws. To the same year is connected the construction of the church of San Giacomo di Rialto, known to the Venetians as San Giacometo, traditionally considered one of the oldest of the city.
