Brief history of Venice. The keys to the economic domination of Venice on Italy in the Middle Ages are insular and naval ease of Venetians who has been growing for more than a millennium.
The area to the northwest end of the Adriatic Sea, where several rivers from the Alps to throw, is inhabited since ancient times by fishermen, sailors and salt smugglers. This area was part of the X region created by Augustus. This area was later named Venetia name of the Veneti, former integrated Italic people in the Roman Republic on iie century BC. J-C; Aquileia - on land - was the religious center and an important port.
The invasions of the Goths of Alaric I and Attila's Huns pushed local people to take refuge in the islands of the marshes along the Adriatic Sea, near the delta of the Po. 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 islands of rivus altus, which will become the Rialto.

In 452, a first settlement was founded by refugees from Padua and Aquileia. The region fell later in Ostrogothic kingdom was conquered and then with the rest of Italy by General Belisarius, becoming a province of the Roman Empire under Justinian East.
The city of Venice was founded towards the end of the sixth century by the inhabitants of the neighboring regions, sought 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 swampy area, difficult to access for ships keel, remained under the jurisdiction of the Exarchate of Ravenna, Province of Eastern Roman Empire. So she was initially a refuge from the Roman-Byzantine civilization but as its development, its autonomy was increased to achieve independence.

Taking advantage of the antagonism between the Exarchate of Ravenna and 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 did not become truly independent after the withdrawal of the Byzantines in the Adriatic, shortly after the year 1000, during the emergence of the Kingdom of Hungary. The city-state once leaned over the sea to expand its power.

Venice had no own constitution. Indeed the definition of powers and the 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 doge the top. Between the two sat the Grand Council, the Forty and the Senate, and the Ducal Council. This political organization whose features are emerging in the thirteenth century was maintained until 17974. The quadrupling of naval power in the first third of the fifteenth century, due to the Arsenale in Venice the largest 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 expansion to the eastern Mediterranean, led to strong growth of the city. After the 4th Crusade, Venice turned on Constantinople, the Republic seizes the riches of the Byzantine Empire and is its own maritime empire consisting mostly of Greek and Dalmatian islands. It complements the conquering Dalmatia Mainland, 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 rival in northern Italy and the Mediterranean. The climax of this struggle will be the fourth Genoese war, otherwise called War of Chioggia. Venice was the victor of the conflict, but very exhausted. The Treaty of Turin, in 1381, was not particularly advantageous to him 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. But it retained its institutions and its major colonies.

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 area is the first organized stock exchange, according to historian Fernand Braudel. Merchants will exchange holdings in Venetian galleys, auctioned according to the Incanto system galleys of market5. Venice becomes the most important port in the Mediterranean, outperforming Constantinople. He had to conquer lands of the lagoon.
The decline began with the Turkish advance in the Mediterranean, which deprived the gradually all Greek lands, with the exception of the Ionian Islands, and its access to the 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 ocean after the discovery of America.
Venice maintained its cultural influence, becoming the European city most elegant and refined of the eighteenth century, with a strong influence on art, architecture and literature.
Politically again an Italian State among others, Venice was annexed by Napoleon Bonaparte May 12, 1797, during the first coalition. The French invasion put an end to nearly 800 years of independence. Napoleon, however, was seen as a kind of liberating the poor and Jewish population of Venice, aristocratic republic where power and most of the wealth was monopolized by a few families. Napoleon abolished the barriers of the Ghetto and the traffic restrictions imposed on Jews.

In 1797, the Treaty of Campo Formio, Napoleon gave Venice and its territories to the Habsburgs in exchange for Belgium, then he resumed 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. The Austrian domination of Venice and the Veneto was not completed as October 3, 1866 after his defeat of Sadowa against the Prusso-Italian alliance. Venice became an Italian province capital and one of the centers of world tourism.

After World War II, Italy laid claim to Austria defeated once all Venetian territories, but clashed with Yugoslav claims and secured to the Treaty of Rapallo that Istria, the city of Zara in Dalmatia and islands of Veglia, Cherso and Lagosta. The 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 took refuge.
