Venice and its First World War

Venice and its First World War

(p.77) Chapter Four Venice and its First World War
Italian Venice

R.J.B. Bosworth

Yale University Press

This chapter examines the impact of World War I on Venice and vice versa. It begins by focusing on the night of October 24, 1915, when Austrian planes dropped incendiary bombs that hit the seventeenth-century church of Santa Maria de Nazaret. The church was restored and reopened for religious services in July 1917. The discussion then turns to Nazario Sauro's memory sites in Venice, including a memorial beside the Grand Canal and a tomb in the Tempio Votivo. The chapter also looks at the 11th Biennale art festival held from April 15 to October 31, the nationalists' propaganda of Venice's war experience, and the city's patriotic contribution during the war.

Keywords:   memory sites, World War I, Venice, Santa Maria de Nazaret, Nazario Sauro, Grand Canal, Tempio Votivo, Biennale art festival, nationalists, propaganda
