Venice – a beautiful city, sung in the works of many generations of poets, writers, artists, musicians. But Venice is famous not only for its beauty and attraction for tourists. It is a city with an extraordinary destiny, in the Middle Ages it turned into an independent state formation – the Republic, a strong maritime and trading power. Maritime trade ensured the rapid economic development of Venice. Beginning in 1000 and later, for many centuries, sailors and merchants created an extensive Mediterranean empire. The fourth crusade, during which the crusading armies deviated from their original purpose, provided Venice with dominance on the Levante, both on land and at sea; From now on, it zealously protects the lands acquired there from rivals. The city of Venice is a true masterpiece created by human hands in defiance of nature, from the very beginning of the urbanization of this corner on the Adriatic coast. If in the beginning of the XI century. Venice was just a settlement where fishermen and artisans lived, then by the end of the century it has significantly increased its size and acquired a higher status. It has its own courtyard, its highest dignitaries, its own administration, and the doge at the head of the city. The people (populus) choose the doge at the general meeting, actively participate in legislative and legal activities. The dominant social group consists of members of the “old houses” (case vecchie) – Contarini, Orseolo, Fallier, Badoer, Miquel, Justinian – who own vast lands and constantly invest in trade, and also belong to “new homes” (case nuove). Trading societies created by nobles (nobles) are called rogadie and colleganze. The founders of the first trust the merchant with the goods that he is obliged to sell; The creators of the second unite capital and labor, profits are divided in half, and losses are proportional: two-thirds to one. Due to their ability to respond quickly and overall activity, the Venetians in the first half of the 12th century were very successful both in trade and in organizing the inner life of the city.
Venice actively develops trade relations with Italy and Germany, importing there from the East silk, spices, cotton, sugar, perfume and jewelry; From Europe to the East the Venetians carry timber, iron and copper; Also, to their great benefit, they establish a trade monopoly on salt. “Having turned into a real storehouse of eastern goods at the doorstep of Italy and Germany, Venice is thriving, extracting from its position profit for itself and the necessary benefits for others.”
