Piazza San Marco (often known in English as St Mark's Square), is the principal public square of Venice, Italy, where it is generally known just as "the Piazza". All other urban spaces in the city (except the Piazzetta and the Piazzale Roma) are called "campi" (fields). The Piazzetta (the 'little Piazza') is an extension of the Piazza towards the lagoon in its south east corner . The two spaces together form the social, religious and political centre of Venice and are commonly considered together. A remark usually attributed to Napoleon calls the Piazza San Marco "the drawing room of Europe". (The attribution to Napoleon is unproven). It is one of the few great urban spaces in Europe where human voices prevail over the sounds of motorized traffic.------------------------------------------------------------------- --------------------------La Plaza de San Marcos es la única plaza de Venecia, y su principal destino turístico, abundante en fotógrafos, turistas y palomas. Se atribuye a Napoleón Bonaparte, aunque muy probablemente fue Alfred de Musset, el apodarla le plus élégant salon d'Europe (el salón más bello de Europa) También es el único gran espacio urbano en una ciudad europea donde las voces de las personas se imponen sobre los sonidos del tráfico motorizado, el cual es restringido a los canales de la ciudad.--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
