This is the first research work in English and Italian to attempt an accurate historical and cultural survey of the lagoon islands of Venice other than Murano,Torcello and Burano. The authors have had over thirty five years of experience mapping, describing and, in some cases, preserving the heritage of these numerous islands. The abandonment of the islands has left many in great peril from changing climate,time and the depredations of man. Extraordinarily rich in detail and discussion (included material from medieval, Renaissance, Enlightenment and modern sources , chroniclers and writers that has hitherto not been translated). A discussion of current urban and climatic issues facing the Venetian lagoon also included.

Visualizing Venice presents the ways in which the use of innovative technology can provide new and fascinating stories about places and times within history. Written by those behind the Visualizing Venice project, this book explores the variety of disciplines and analytical methods generated by technologies such as 3D images and interoperable models, GIS mapping and historical cartography, databases, video animations, and applications for mobile devices and the web. The volume is one of the first collections of essays to integrate the theory and practice of visualization technologies with art, architectural, and urban history. The chapters demonstrate how new methodologies generated by technology can change and inform the way historians think and work, and the potential that such methods have to revolutionize research, teaching, and public-facing communication. With over 30 images to support and illustrate the project’s work, Visualizing Venice is ideal for academics, and postgraduates of digital history, digital humanities, and early modern Italy.

Developed throughout early modern Europe, lazaretti, or plague hospitals, took on a central role in early modern responses to epidemic disease, in particular the prevention and treatment of plague. The lazaretti served as isolation hospitals, quarantine centres, convalescent homes, cemeteries, and depots for the disinfection or destruction of infected goods. The first permanent example of this institution was established in Venice in 1423 and between the fifteenth and eighteenth centuries tens of thousands of patients passed through the doors. Founded on lagoon islands, the lazaretti tell us about the relationship between the city and its natural environment. The plague hospitals also illustrate the way in which medical structures in Venice intersected with those of piety and poor relief and provided a model for public health which was influential across Europe. This is the first detailed study of how these plague hospitals functioned, where they were situated, who worked there, what it was like to stay there, and how many people survived. Comparisons are made between the Venetian lazaretti and similar institutions in Padua, Verona and other Italian and European cities. Centred on the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, during which time there were both serious plague outbreaks in Europe and periods of relative calm, the book explores what the lazaretti can tell us about early modern medicine and society and makes a significant contribution to both Venetian history and our understanding of public health in early modern Europe, engaging with ideas of infection and isolation, charity and cure, dirt, disease and death.

Author of statues in the major churches of Padua and Venice, Giammaria Mosca was among the leading sculptors in northern Italy during the second and third decades of the sixteenth century. In 1529 Mosca was summoned by the King of Poland to erect his tomb in Cracow. From 1533 until the artist's death in 1574, documents at regular intervals record important commissions to Mosca throughout Poland from the Polish royal family, as well as from prominent members of the nobility and ecclesiastical hierarchy. Many of Mosca's inscribed and documented monuments survive in their original site and state and testify to the sculptor's key role in the diffusion in Eastern Europe of Italian Renaissance ideals. In both native and adoptive homes, thus, there exists a substantial body of extant and documented works by Mosca; indeed, Mosca is virtually unique among &émigr&é Renaissance sculptors for the completeness with which both halves of his career are documented and therefore offers the perfect test case for assessing the effect of emigration from the center to the periphery. Yet no one has ever asked whether Mosca's move to Poland changed his art. For the first time, Anne Markham Schulz not only explores the effect on Mosca's art of new patrons and materials, of different artistic conventions, functions, and traditions, but also sets Mosca's emigration within the context of those cultural exchanges between Italy and Poland that contributed fundamentally to the formation of the Polish Renaissance. This book represents the first comprehensive study of Giammaria Mosca in any language. It includes more than 260 detail photographs of all of Mosca's sculptures; almost every one has been made anew, many from specially constructed scaffolds. In addition, another 109 photographs illustrate comparative works. All documents concerning the artist, most never published before and many quite unknown, are reproduced in their entirety. There is an exhaustive catalogue of all works attributed to Mosca or his shop and a comprehensive bibliography of scholarship in ten languages.

In this elegant book Richard Bosworth explores Venice—not the glorious Venice of the Venetian Republic, but from the fall of the Republic in 1797 and the Risorgimento up through the present day. Bosworth looks at the glamour and squalor of the belle époque and the dark underbelly of modernization, the two world wars, and the far-reaching oppressions of the fascist regime, through to the “Disneylandification” of Venice and the tourist boom, the worldwide attention of the biennale and film festival, and current threats of subsidence and flooding posed by global warming. He draws out major themes—the increasingly anachronistic but deeply embedded Catholic Church, the two faces of modernization, consumerism versus culture. Bosworth interrogates not just Venice’s history but its meanings, and how the city’s past has been co-opted to suit present and sometimes ulterior aims. Venice, he shows, is a city where its histories as well as its waters ripple on the surface.

Un misterioso manoscritto. Una cospirazione letale. Un folle assassinoBOEMIA, 1741. In una cappella privata sulle rive della Moldava, una nobildonna ungherese, Eleonora Amalia von Schwarzenberg, sta per ricevere l’estremo saluto. Ma per accertarsi che la defunta riposi in pace, il cuore le è stato strappato dal petto e la salma giace sotto un pesante strato di pietre. Per evitare che risorga dalla tomba in cerca di vittime...VENEZIA, 2010. L’ispettore Chris Bronson e l’ex moglie Angela Lewis sono in vacanza nella città più romantica del mondo quando all’improvviso, durante una visita all’isola-cimitero di San Michele, assistono a una macabra scena: una tomba si è aperta, e al suo interno è visibile lo scheletro di una donna. Nella tomba è custodito anche un diario scritto in latino, le cui pagine contengono un riferimento a un misterioso manoscritto. Intanto la città viene sconvolta da una serie di terribili omicidi: alcune giovani donne sono state torturate e uccise secondo un oscuro rituale. Quando anche Angela scompare, la vacanza si trasforma in un vero incubo e Bronson si ritrova improvvisamente coinvolto in una frenetica caccia all’assassino. Sulla spettrale “isola dei morti”, ripercorrerà le tracce di un’antichissima e letale cospirazione, che ha origini molto lontane, in un altro tempo e in un altro Paese...
