Looks like the clock tower, where they're going to shoot scenes for New Moon, has been decorated with red flags and banners.
They’re preparing for Saint Marcus day! Today a pickup loaded with red flags and ensigns was spotted in the main square, Piazza Grande. A few hours later all over the front of the cityhall there were those flags pinned. Meanwhile the fountain is now almost finished and today it was painted with waterproof so now it seems a little more whitish!New Moon Movie for the photo.
