The Republic of Venice was a state originating from the city of Venice in Northeastern Italy. It existed for over a millennium, from the late 7th century until 1797. Despite its long history of war and conquest, the Republic's modern reputation is chiefly based on its status as an economic and trading power.

East Meets West in Venice

For much of the millennium before the rise of Portugal and Spain, Venice flourished as the hub of Europe’s trade with the lands to its east and south, weaving not only economic ties but also a web of cultural exchanges. The profound mutual influences between East and West inspired a major exhibition as well as fresh looks at Venice by historians.

Doge Enrico Dandolo, Doge of Venice. Blind and ninety years old, he led his army in the Crusade. He brought back the bronze Quadriga (team of four horses) which stand on the loggia of the Basilica of San Marco from the siege of Constantinople.

This Doge Enrico Dandolo, was the man behind the fourth Crusade, personally leading an armada of Venetian ships to the east. Tragically he was present and a political participant of the Sack of Constantinople in 1204. Men of the Cross killing other men of the Cross and destroying one of the greatest cities in the world, also opened the flood gates for Ottoman rule. Such tragic irony riddled with greed and blind hate.
