On this day in 421, The city of Venice, Italy was founded at the stroke of noon. Legend has it that the northern Italian city of Venice is created precisely at 12 noon with the dedication of its first church, San Giocomo, on the islet of Rialto. Venice will eventually spread across 117 small islands.
