Ermanno Orlando received a B.A. in History at the University of Venice and a Ph.D. in Historical and Anthropological Sciences at the University of Verona. He was a research fellow at the Universities of Venice and Verona. His research focuses on the history of Venice in the Late Middle Ages, the social and cultural history of Italy and the Mediterranean World and the history of mobility and trade. In particular, his studies concentrated on three main themes: the institutional and jurisdictional relationships between Venice and its maritime state, the Stato da Mar, with a focus on the Adriatic area (including the Dalmatian coasts) and the Western Balkans; the history of marriage and family, with reference to the Veneto and the Venetian area; the migration movements towards Venice, with a particular attention to the connections between the city and its minorities. Currently he is working, within VISCOM, on a research project on the urban commune of Split in the 15th century.
