The article narrates the involvement and the operations of Giacomo Boni (1859-1925) in investigating the St. Mark’s bell tower in Venice. Indeed, Boni started his career as a future archaeologist with an excavation conducted at the base of St. Mark’s bell tower together with the young American architect Clarence H. Blackall (1857-1942). Here for the first time, parts of Blackall’s unpublished diary chronicling the enterprise are transcribed. Later, it was again Boni who was responsible for examining archaeological materials after the collapse of St. Mark’s bell tower (1902) as well as contributing to the plan for its reconstruction.

Abstract

The article narrates the involvement and the operations of Giacomo Boni (1859-1925) in investigating the St. Mark’s bell tower in Venice. Indeed, Boni started his career as a future archaeologist with an excavation conducted at the base of St. Mark’s bell tower together with the young American architect Clarence H. Blackall (1857-1942). Here for the first time, parts of Blackall’s unpublished diary chronicling the enterprise are transcribed. Later, it was again Boni who was responsible for examining archaeological materials after the collapse of St. Mark’s bell tower (1902) as well as contributing to the plan for its reconstruction.
