Civic Tower


52 meters high, the Civic Tower, also called Campanone, was the symbol of the medieval city, by its two panoramic floors, reachable with a ultra-modern lift, offers not only splendid views over the roofs of the centre historical and on the Alpine chain, but it is an ideal point of view to admire Old Square.

From the top of the Civic Tower you can see it the balanced measure of this space and of the beautiful fountain, donated in 1780 to the city by the Venetian mayor Alvise Contarini.
The name Campanone derives from the large one bell which, in addition to announcing meetings of the city council, beats every evening, always at 10pm, more than 100 shots, recalling the ancient curfew, or the ancient closing of the doors in the evening city.
