Description
In this colorful history, a leading expert on Venice tells the story of the city from its ancient origins. Elizabeth Horodowich, also the author of Language and Statecraft in Early Modern Venice, illuminates the islands' early days as a multicultural trading place where Christians, Jews, and Muslims lived together at the crossroads between East and West, and she explores Venice's often overlooked role as one of the principal Renaissance capitals, alongside Florence and Rome. Today, as the resident population falls and the number of tourists grows, and as brash new advertisements disfigure ancient buildings, Horodowich looks at the threat from rising water levels, and considers the future of one of the world's most treasured cities.
