Tiggerific Tuesday Trivia: Epcot’s Italy Pavilion

Tiggerific Tuesday Trivia

Did YOU know this week’s Tiggerific Tuesday Trivia about Epcot’s Italy Pavilion?

The Campanile San Marco bell tower and Doge’s Palace at Epcot’s Italy Pavilion, while exact 1/4-scale replicas of the original buildings, are placed in reverse position from where they stand in St. Mark’s Square in Venice.The Campanile in Venice is also a replica, as the original tower collapsed in 1902 and was rebuilt in the same location.

    I didn’t know that – wonder why they did that.. guess it worked better in the circle! Thanks for hosting this and keeping us all together!

    I didn’t realize that either.  We visited Venice, Italy when I was 5.  In my mind, it wasn’t nearly so colorful as the Italy pavilion at Epcot.  And what stands out in my mind as the most authentic is the gondola!

    Wow, I love it!   So much to learn about the World Showcase, I love spending the day wondering.    Thanks again for hosting!

    Interesting that they stand opposite of the original. The folks at Disney always seem to want everything as exact as possible. Must have been something about the particular geography at Epcot.
