Awaiting an Italian Destiny Venice To 1866

Awaiting an Italian Destiny Venice To 1866

(p.1) Chapter One Awaiting an Italian Destiny Venice To 1866
Italian Venice

R.J.B. Bosworth

Yale University Press

This chapter focuses on Venice under “foreign” French or Austrian rule from 1797 to 1866. More specifically, it examines the physical and spiritual changes that occurred in Venice in the two decades following 1797 which thus shaped its path to 1866 and beyond. It first considers the destruction of the fabric of religious welfare in Venice under France, highlighted by the demolition of churches and the transfer of cathedral status from San Pietro in Castello to San Marco in 1807. It then discusses conscription for Napoleon Bonaparte's wars and the introduction of a taxation system in the city. It also describes the Habsburg Empire's policies in Venice, including measures aimed at stifling the rise of nationalism in Austria's territories in Italy and elsewhere. Finally, the chapter turns to the war between France and Austria that culminated in Venice's unification with Italy in 1866.
