New publication: Il Commonwealth veneziano tra 1204 e la fine della Repubblica. Identità e peculiarità.

Edited by Gherardo Ortalli, Oliver Jens Schmitt and Ermanno Orlando (Venice, 2015).

Published by the Istituto Veneto di Scienze Lettere ed Arti.

This book assesses the status quo of current research on the Venetian ‘Commonwealth’ in the long period between the establishment of the Latin Empire of Constantinople in 1204 and the end of the Respublica in 1797. The scope is on one hand an overview of Venetian affairs in general and on the other the definition of the features of a state and its specific traits and very particular experiences.
