VENICE (VENEZIA)

<< previous | PAGE 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | next >>

The decline of the Mediterranean traffic that followed the discovery of America, together with the advancement of the Ottoman population in the Mediterranean, signalled a final wane also of its commercial power: Cyprus (1569), Candia and Famagosta (1645-69), the Morea (Peace of Passarowitz, 1718) which were lost to the Turks. The city went downhill until it was occupied (1796) by the Napoleonic troops, who surrendered it to the Austrian Empire (Treaty of Campoformio, 1797).

Returned to the French (Peace of Presburgo, 1805) and included in the Italico Reign, it was then returned to the Asburgo’s after the Congress of Vienna (1815), reduced to a second rate economic and cultural centre. The hostility towards the Imperial Government, was openly manifested through the revolt of 1848, by throwing out the Austrians and proclaiming it the Republic of St. Marks (23.3.1848, governed by Daniel Manin), then resigning to a long siege until 11.8.1849. In 1866 (3a War of Independence), it was annexed to the Italian Reign.

The history of Venice is entwined with that of its art, shown by the remarkable and innumerable monuments which characterize its “sestieri,” that is, the districts in which the city is divided. The two main nuclei are however, the entire architectonic of St.Marks Square – which includes the Cathedral (11th Century onwards), the Tower (9th-1477 Century), the Clock Tower (1499), the Old Procurator (1514), the New Procurator (1582-1640), the Ducal Palace (1340-15th century), the Marciana Library (16th Century) – the bourgeois-commercial area of Rialto, characterized by the homonymic Bridge of 1591, the area of the Market and that of the banks of “Wine” and “Coal”.
