The Brandolin Group ... the folks who are working on the restoration of the Clock Tower in Piazza San Marco ... have installed two new webcams at the top of the structure. Both provide excellent, high res images ... 640 x 480.
The first, seen below, looks down on the Piazzetta/Molo and toward the island of San Giorgio Maggiore. Click here to see a live view. The colors at night are uber-dramatic.
The second cam (below) looks at the end of the Piazza opposite the Basilica, toward the Correr Museum. Click here for a live view. Not such a great night image (as you can see below!), but quite wonderful when the sun is up.
These new cams are almost (but not quite) enough for me to forgive the Brandolin Group for the inexplicable, wacky mural of the Tower of Pisa that has been draped over the entire span of the Clock Tower while it's being fixed. (See the picture below) Brandolin has an explanation, which I won't bother you with. Suffice it to say that most Venetians truly hate the mural and dream of tearing it to bits.
