1000 years of strained necks

In 828, Venetian merchants stole St. Mark’s body from Egypt and brought it to the Venice. Venice’s city fathers used the occasion to begin building St. Mark’s cathedral. Today, the cathedral’s 24,000 square foot “ceiling of gold” is one of the principal attractions in Venice.
