  • The porphyry sculpture installed at the corner of St. Mark's Cathedral façade, depicts the four co-rulers of the Roman Empire or the members of the family of Constantine the great. Known not so much for its artistic and historical value, and the history of origin: brought as trophy of the crusade from Constantinople, not entirely (part of the leg one of the shapes and the pedestal is made of white marble). In my case-this is a story with a sequel: in 2009 year-survey of the main part of the sculptural group in Venice in the year 2014-the missing part of the sculpture in the archaeological museum in Istanbul.

  • When I saw these statues, I did not know the story behind them, but I could tell that they were not original. When I got home I found out their history and was amazed that something so old (about 1700 years old) was just sitting out in public where countless people have probably touched it. I'm amazed that it has not been vandalized at some point over the centuries.
  • Noone knows the real story behind this masterpiece but it's phenomenal and worth stopping by.
  • Nice statue with a nice history, that brings to mind memories from high-school studies!
  • You need to be here if you wish to see the whole Venice on top.
  • This monument will be interesting to those who loves and knows the history of the city
