Brief history of Venezia

The founding of Venice is to be dated back to the dedication of the first church (San Jacopo at the islet of Rialto), approximately around 421. The seat of the local government was originally in Malamocco but, during the reign of duke Agnello Particiaco (811-827), it was moved to Rialto, which is the current location of Venice.
In this period the Venetians built the monastery of St. Zachary and the first ducal palace and basilica of St. Mark, as well as the defense walls between Olivolo and Rialto.
In 810, an agreement with Charlemagne recognized Venice as Byzantine territory with trading rights along the Adriatic coast.
In 828 Venice gained prestige through the acquisition of the claimed relics of St.Mark, the Evangelist from Alexandria.
The strategic position of Venice, right at the head of the Adriatic Sea, made its naval and commercial power almost invulnerable.
Venice became an imperial power in consequence to the Fourth Crusade, which in 1204 seized and sacked Constantinople and established the Latin Empire.
After the fall of Constantinople, the former Roman Empire was shared among the Latin crusaders and the Venetians.
By the late thirteenth century, the power and wealth of Venice was emphasized by the construction of grand palaces and the support to the work of the greatest and most talented artists of the time.
The city was governed by the Great Council, which was composed of the members of the Venetian noble families.
The Great Council assigned all public offices and elected a Senate of 200 to 300 individuals.
In order to avoid bureaucratic inefficiency, since this group was too large, a Council of Ten, was appointed to control the administration of the city.
One member of the great council was elected "Doge", a charge he would normally have detained for all his life. Venice remained a republic throughout its independent period and politics and the military were generally kept separate.
Though the people of Venice generally remained orthodox Roman Catholics, the state of Venice was notable for its freedom from religious.
Venice began to lose its position as a center of international trade during the later part of the Renaissance.
However, the Venetian empire remained a major exporter of agricultural products and, until the mid-18th century, a significant manufacturing center.

After noon: lunch at a typical "bacaro", a kind of traditional wine-bar.
In the afternoon, visit to Murano at the discovery of Venetian's glass production.
