Brief history of Venice. Key economic domination of Venice Italy in the Middle Ages are insular and naval ease Venetians which has grown steadily for more than a millennium.
The area at the north-western tip of the Adriatic Sea, where several rivers flow from the Alps, has been inhabited since ancient times by fishermen, sailors and salt smugglers. This area was part of the X region created by Augustus. This region was then called the name of the Veneti Venetia, formerly integrated into the Roman Republic from the iie century BC italics people. JC; Aquileia - on land - was the religious center and major port.
The invasions of the Goths of Alaric I and Attila's Huns pushed the local population to take refuge in the islands of marshes along the Adriatic Sea, near the Po delta. According to legend later developed by the Venetians to demonstrate the antiquity of their city and the distant origin of their liberty, Venice was founded on March 25 in the 421 islets rivus altus, which became the Rialto.

In 452, a first settlement was founded by refugees from Padua and Aquileia. The region fell thereafter to Ostrogothic kingdom was conquered and then with the rest of Italy by General Belisarius, becoming a province of the Eastern Roman Empire under Justinian.
The city of Venice was founded in the late sixth century by people from neighboring regions, have taken refuge in number in the islands of the lagoon formed by the estuary of the river Po after the invasion of northern Italy by Lombards in 568. Indeed, this marshy area, difficult access for ships keel, remained under the jurisdiction of the Exarchate of Ravenna, Province of the Eastern Roman Empire. It was therefore initially a refuge from the Roman-Byzantine civilization but as and when it develops, its autonomy was increased to achieve independence.

Taking advantage of the antagonism between the Exarchate of Ravenna, the Lombards, Venetians extended their policy space and endowed a local power embodied by the first Duke or "doge" Paolucio Anafesto (697-717), character the borders of legend and history. The city of Venice became truly independent after the withdrawal of the Byzantines of the Adriatic, shortly after 1000, when the emergence of the Kingdom of Hungary. The city-state once leaned over the sea to extend its power.

Venice had no own constitution. Indeed the definition of functions and mechanism of governmental institutions fell in Venice customary law. Government decision-making bodies formed a pyramid with the People's Assembly was the base and the top doge. Between the two sat the Grand Council, Forty and the Senate, then the Ducal Council. This political organization whose features are emerging in the thirteenth century will continue until 17974. The quadrupling of naval power in the first third of the fifteenth century, makes the Venice Arsenal the biggest factory in the world, employing up to 16,000 people, behind a secret chamber 25 hectares. The naval activity is driven by the dynamism of the Venetian business district.

The salt trade and business development to the eastern Mediterranean, led to strong growth of the city. After the fourth crusade, Venice turned on Constantinople, the Republic seizes the wealth of the Byzantine Empire and is its own maritime empire consisting of most of the Greek and Dalmatian islands. It complements conquering mainland Dalmatia, Istria and a vast area between the Alps and the Po, including the cities of Bergamo, Brescia, Verona, Padua, Treviso and Udine. It conflicts with Genoa, its great rival in northern Italy and the Mediterranean. The climax of this fight will be the fourth Genoese war, otherwise known as War of Chioggia. Venice emerged victorious from the conflict, but very exhausted. The Treaty of Turin in 1381, it was not particularly great: despite his victory, Venice had to give up territories and grant certain rights to its rival. She lost Treviso and Dalmatia returning to the King of Hungary. However, it retained its institutions and major settlements.

The city has a fleet of armed galleys 6000, allowing him to take risks in the form of regular convoys to rule over the Mediterranean Sea. The Rialto is the first organized stock exchange, according to the historian Fernand Braudel. Merchants who exchange shares in the Venetian galleys, auctioned by the system of the galleys of Incanto market5. Venice becomes the most important Mediterranean port, outperforming Constantinople. He had to conquer lands on the lagoon.
The decline began with the Turkish advance in the Mediterranean, which gradually deprived of all Greek lands, with the exception of the Ionian Islands, and its access to markets of the Silk Road, which was also very touched by the plague black. Despite the victory over the Turks at Lepanto in 1571, the Republic of Venice yet lost its commercial importance because of the diversion of European trade to the oceans after the discovery of America.
Venice maintained its cultural influence, becoming the most elegant and refined of the eighteenth century European city, with a strong influence on art, architecture and literature.
Become politically Italian State among others, Venice was annexed by Napoleon Bonaparte 12 May 1797 during the First Coalition. The French invasion put an end to nearly 800 years of independence. Napoleon, however, was seen as a sort of liberating the poor and Jewish population of Venice, aristocratic republic where power and wealth were the most monopolized by a few families. Napoleon abolished the gates of the Ghetto and the traffic restrictions imposed on Jews.

In 1797, by the Treaty of Campo Formio, Napoleon gave Venice and its territories the Habsburgs in exchange for Belgium, then he took them in 1805 to integrate the kingdom of Italy which he was crowned king before the city was incorporated into the Austrian Empire from 1815 to 1866. Austrian domination of Venice and the Veneto was not completed that October 3, 1866 after his defeat against Sadowa Prusso-Italian alliance. Venice became a capital of the Italian province and one of the landmarks of world tourism.

After the First World War, Italy defeated Austria laid claim to all formerly Venetian territories, but was met with Yugoslav claims and obtained the Treaty of Rapallo that Istria, the city of Zara in Dalmatia and islands of Veglia, Cherso and Lagosta. Resentment developed at that time contributed to the subsequent success of Mussolini. After World War II, Italy also lost these possessions in favor of Yugoslavia, leaving only Trieste which is not part of the formerly Venetian territories, but where the Italian-speaking populations expelled from Yugoslavia fled.
