Italy – Arsenale, the secret Venice

Venice (Italy), officials leave through the Porta di Terra following a graduation ceremony at the Italian Navy’s School of Military and Maritime studies, which has premises inside the Arsenale. The navy occupies around 40% of the Arsenale including the waters of the internal docks. In front of the entrance is a gate decorated with allegorical statues and one of the four marble lions of Greek origin (this hails from Piraeus and is a war trophy from the end of the 17th century).
