Ravenna in the Venetian era
Ravenna, Italy, in the Venetian era. Hotel near the monuments of the Venetian era in Ravenna.
In 1441 the town came under the rule of the Venetians for the next seventy years, offered to them by the Da Polenta lords.
The town which in fact still depended on the Church of Rome, experienced a new period of splendour: the definitive burying of the canals that crossed the town dated back to this time and the town centre was given a new look, with the Rocca Brancaleone, the restoration of the Palazzo Comunale, and the addition of the two columns of Piazza Maggiore.
The memories still remain of a mistrustful government and a highly efficient network of secret police, that had the locals in constant fear.
