Italian Venice

R.J.B. Bosworth

Yale University Press

This chapter examines the complications arising from the imposition of liberal and national rule in Venice following its unification with Italy during the period 1866–1900. It first considers the reaction of the Catholic Church to liberalism and nationalism, with particular reference to powerful figures such as Pius IX, Giuseppe Luigi Trevisanato, and Count Giovanni Battista Paganuzzi. It then discusses the initiatives of liberals to improve urban living in Venice, especially housing. It also looks at the industrialisation of the city, focusing on the emergence of industries such as lace making, pearl embroidering, and tobacco manufacturing.

Keywords:   liberalism, nationalism, Venice, Italy, Catholic Church, Pius IX, Giovanni Battista Paganuzzi, housing, industrialisation, industries
