Kurzbeschreibung

5. September 2002
Perhaps more than in any other city, Venice has been shaped by its environment. The lagoon on which it was built isolated the city's inhabitants from mainland Europe, forcing them to look seaward for their survival and to establish a maritime empire that generated incalculable wealth, making Venice the envy of Renaissance Europe. In this volume, Elisabeth Crouzet-Pavan provides a multilayered history of Venice from Roman times to the 16th century. Instead of employing a rigidly chronological framework, she looks at the history of Venice thematically, focusing on the relationship between the city and its unique physical milieu in a way that emphasizes complexity and continuity. Central to Crouzet-Pavan's discussion is her concept of "l'imaginaire", literally translated as "the imaginary" and here meaning the many symbolic terms Venetians created to describe and understand the peculiar space they inhabited and, by extension, themselves. One key example of "l'imaginaire" is Venetians' use of the term "the continent" to refer, somewhat dismissively, to Italy, Germany, and other lands beyond the lagoon in order to emphasize their own distinctive maritime identity. As Crouzet-Pavan shows, this sense of exceptionalism impacts every aspect of Venetian history: its art and architecture; its involvement with mainland politics; its commercial, civic, and political institutions; and the shape of daily life in its homes, alleys, and courtyards.

Pressestimmen

Pick up "Venice Triumphant" and you can get lost in its pages as you might in a glossy picture book of the city--enjoying the verbal images, reading a bit in one place or another, skipping around as mood and moment suggest.--Robert Davis"Mediterranean Historical Review" (01/01/2005)

Synopsis

Perhaps more than in any other city, Venice has been shaped by its environment. The lagoon on which it was built isolated the city's inhabitants from mainland Europe, forcing them to look seaward for their survival and to establish a maritime empire that generated incalculable wealth, making Venice the envy of Renaissance Europe. In this volume, Elisabeth Crouzet-Pavan provides a multilayered history of Venice from Roman times to the 16th century. Instead of employing a rigidly chronological framework, she looks at the history of Venice thematically, focusing on the relationship between the city and its unique physical milieu in a way that emphasizes complexity and continuity. Central to Crouzet-Pavan's discussion is her concept of "l'imaginaire", literally translated as "the imaginary" and here meaning the many symbolic terms Venetians created to describe and understand the peculiar space they inhabited and, by extension, themselves. One key example of "l'imaginaire" is Venetians' use of the term "the continent" to refer, somewhat dismissively, to Italy, Germany, and other lands beyond the lagoon in order to emphasize their own distinctive maritime identity.

As Crouzet-Pavan shows, this sense of exceptionalism impacts every aspect of Venetian history: its art and architecture; its involvement with mainland politics; its commercial, civic, and political institutions; and the shape of daily life in its homes, alleys, and courtyards.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A tremendous history of an ancient city. 27. Juli 2006
Von Cas - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
This author knows her subject inside and out. Written in lively prose that's easy to follow, she provides plenty of research to back up her many theories and does it gracefully and in readable fashion. Starting with the very earliest settlers, she details how Venice's islands were created and maintained, and once she's established a physical framework, plunges into the government and politics. There's plenty of information here about Venice's thriving slave industry as well as its other luxury industries (glassmaking, silk weaving, book printing, etc) and how the city protected its industries from imitation. How the culture and society worked with the politics and the realities of island life are well-detailed too. The timeline meanders here and there, but overall, you know what year she's talking about.

Chapters cover the birth of Venice, trade and politics in the city and beyond, church culture and politics, and social customs and mores including info about marriage, homosexuality, and slavery.

Her citation list is a gem, giving you plenty of places to read further. Overall, I found this a scholarly but readable book. It was my first real education in the history of Venice, and I think it was the best introduction I could have gotten. Do try it -- your guide knows this city like the back of her hand and leads you amiably along waterways, pointing out the sights and gossiping about the history in a breathless rush.
