About this product
- DescriptionVenice grew out of the swamps of Italy and became one of the great mercantile and cultural centers of the world. Elizabeth Horodowich, one of the leading historians of the city, tells the whole story, showing that Venice, alongside Florence and Rome, was one of the great Renaissance capitals. The book will also investigate the history of Venice as a multicultural trading city where Christians, Jews, and Muslims lived together at the crossroads between East and West. The narrative runs all the way to the present to the current problems with the sinking island.
- Author BiographyElizabeth Horodowich is the assistant professor of history at the University of New Mexico. She has studied sixteenth-century Venice all her career and is particularly interested in the Renaissance. She is the author of Language and Statecraft in Early Modern Venice.
