Brief history of Venice. The keys to economic domination of Venice on Italy in the Middle Ages are insular and naval ease Venetians that has been growing for over 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, ancient people built italics in the Roman Republic from the iie century BC. J-C; Aquileia - on land - was the religious center and major port.
The invasions of the Goths of Alaric I and Attila the 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 origins 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 thereafter to the Kingdom ostrogoth then was conquered with the rest of Italy by General Belisarius, becoming a province of the Roman Empire under Justinian I eastward.
The city of Venice was founded in the late sixth century by people from neighboring regions, who sought refuge in number on the islands of the lagoon formed by the estuary of the Po after the invasion of northern Italy by Lombards in 568. Indeed, this wetland area, difficult to access for ships keel, remained under the jurisdiction of the Exarchate of Ravenna, Province of 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 and the Lombards, Venetians widened 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 really became 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 extend 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 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 is the Arsenal of Venice the biggest factory in the world, employing up to 16,000 people, a secret chamber behind 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 seized the riches of the Byzantine Empire and its own maritime empire is made up 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, his great rival in northern Italy and the Mediterranean. The climax of this struggle will be the fourth Genoese war, otherwise called War of Chioggia. Venice emerged victorious from 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 the territories and grant certain rights to her rival. She lost Treviso and Dalmatia who was 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 shareholdings in Venetian galleys, auctioned by the Incanto system market5 the galleys. Venice becomes the most important port in the Mediterranean, outperforming Constantinople. He had to conquer the land of the lagoon.
The decline began with the Turkish progress 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 Venetian Republic still lost its commercial importance due to misappropriation of European trade to the oceans 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.
Again become a politically 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 perceived as a kind of liberating the poor and Jewish population of Venice, aristocratic republic where power and most wealth was monopolized by a few families. Napoleon abolished the barriers of the Ghetto and the restrictions of movement 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 of which he was crowned king, before the city was incorporated into the Austrian Empire from 1815-1866. The Austrian domination of Venice and the Veneto not completed that 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 defeated Austria laid claim to all former Venetian territories, but clashed with Yugoslav claims and obtained 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 for the benefit of Yugoslavia, leaving only Trieste who do not belong to the former Venetian territories, but where the Italian-speaking populations expelled from Yugoslavia fled.

When you arrive at the apartment we ask you for cash payment of the "Tassa di Soggiorno" that the Municipality of Venice has recently established for private rental apartment (currently 1. 5 euros / person / night). You will receive a receipt for this payment.
