San Cassiano Theater
The San Cassiano Theater or San Cassiano di Venice, created in 1637, was the first public opera house in the world. It created the concept of charging a ticket to see an opera. It was established by a businessman with the support of the Venetian family Tron. At this time, all the theaters in Venice were private theaters belonging to the aristocratic families.
A first building was built by Andrea Palladio in 1565 near the Rialto. But its wooden structure was destroyed in a fire in 1629 and quickly replaced by a stone building acquired by the Tron family. In San Cassiano L'Andromeda de Manelli and Ferrari premiered and several commercial operas including those of Francesco Cavalli, who directed it for some time.
Public theaters increased and during the 17th century, Venice was the lyrical capital of the world, so in 1807 its last functions were presented in San Cassiano and in 1812 it was demolished, an anonymous French author of the 18th century said of Venice the following: Each house, someone is playing a musical instrument or singing.

St Mark's Campanile
The campanile of San Marcos is the campanile - a particular type of bell tower, exempt and independent of the temple - of the basilica of San Marcos in Venice (Veneto, Italy), located in a corner of the square of San Marcos, near the cover of the basilica. It is one of the symbols of the city. Galileo Galilei demonstrated his telescope to the Doge on August 21, 1609.
It has a total height of 98.6 meters. Its main body, made of brick, is a square base prism 12 m long and 50 m high, on which a white bell tower with four arches per side sits, which houses five bells. The bell tower has a bucket on its top, whose faces are lions and the female representation of Venice (the Giustizia) alternately. The construction is crowned by a pyramidal needle at the end of which there is a golden weather vane with the figure of the archangel Gabriel. The tower that is observed today is a reconstruction of 1912, after the collapse of 1902, although the original form of 1514 remained.

San Polo Field
The Campo de San Polo is the largest square in Venice after the Plaza de San Marcos. It is located in the sestiere of San Polo.
Originally it was dedicated to agriculture and grazing, until in 1493 it was fully paved, placing a well (one of the few fountains found in Venice) in the center. Later it was used as a stage for many bullfights, mask dances and religious sermons. In the seventeenth century, the market of the poor moved from here to San Marco square.
It remains to this day one of the most popular places in the carnival and is also used for outdoor concerts and screenings during the film festival.
Lorenzino de Medici was murdered here in 1548.
In front of the church are the following buildings:
