    One thought on “Venice: A Maritime Republic”

    1. Lane's "Venice. A Maritime Republic" is mostly an economic and naval history of La Serenissima, with some (disappointing) information on the visual arts. The technical chapters about ships and trade routes may scare the amateur reader, but Lane is very good at avoiding any information overload, and he is particularly proficient at explaining complex issues in a clear way. His analysis of Venetian commerce and industry is absolutely brilliant, as it shows Venice's skill at adapting resources to s [...]

    2. I am still reading this book after months and months, it seems. However, it is chock full of interesting details and tidbits about Venice and it's history and culture. Everytime I say I will quit reading it to go on to something else, it brings me back with some dramatic battles with Genoa or the Turks, or some bureaucratic admonitions to keep the republic functioning. Very detailed, but interesting none the less.

    3. Saggio eccellente.Pecca di pesantezza nella parti (abbastanza limitate, per fortuna) di descrizione dei meccanismi bancario-finanziari che, indipendentemente dalla mia ignoranza assoluta in materia, andavano trattati, in quanto parte importante delle fortune di Venezia anche come centro finanziario internazionale.Per il resto, scorre che è un piacere: sintetico, non si perde in particolarismi storici su battaglie e beghe politiche ma le tratteggia con rara capacità, cogliendone gli aspetti fon [...]

    4. Stupendo excursus sulla storia di Venezia scritto dal grande Lane, docente di storia e ricercatore. Il libro, frutto di lunghe ed impegnantive ricerche d'archivio, è specialistico ma la lettura risulta scorrevole ed interessante.

    5. Venezia dietro il suo velo di incanto senza tempo: la nascita della Repubblica, la vocazione marinara, il sistema mercantile, la svolta "terrestre", la più affascinante decandenza della storia

    6. Still the gold standard in Venetian history in English. More technical than Madden's recent work (below), but well worth a read for someone who wants to understand the interlocking pieces of Venetian society.

    7. If "life is a series of events", as the wise ones say, Frederic C. Lane offers the reader a remarkable depiction of the opportunities lost and those taken by the Venetian people. He has produced an invaluable work on an illuminating slice of history.

    8. bellissimo affresco della storia secolare di venezia molto preciso nello spiegare i motivi che hanno permesso la durata della repubblica

    9. Obra classica da História Marítima. Conta os feitos dos venezianos. Texto não traduzido para o português.

    10. Read before and during a trip to Venice. Fantastic, detailed account of the history of Venice. Was recommended to me by a historian of Venice.
