This chapter examines Venice's experience during World War II, the alliance between Italy and Germany during the war, and the restoration of peace in the city by 1948. It considers the impact of the war on Venice, particularly in the fields of art, architecture, leisure, and tourism. It also discusses politics in the city, including the rise of anti-Fascism. Finally, it describes the conditions in Venice in the post-war period, citing the establishment of welfare states as payment to the people for toppling Nazism and Fascism.
