Overview

Drawing on a variety of disciplines—history, art history, and musicol ogy—these essays show that fundamental social categories such as nobi lity and citizenship were continually modified and renegotiated throug hout the Republic's history. In particular, the study of women and non elites complicates the more static images of Venice that once dominate d the historiography. New analyses of Venice's rule of the terraferma have profoundly altered current perceptions of the Republic's politica l history and its legacies to the emerging Italian nation-state. Final ly, through explorations of the meanings and functions of art, music, and architecture, these essays present innovative variants of the myth of Venice—that nearly inexhaustible repertoire of stories Venetians told about themselves.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
The 15 essays collected here draw on a variety of disciplines (history, art history, and musicology) to create a more dynamic and complex picture than the traditional static interpretation of Venetian culture in the 500 years between the Republic's establishment and its fall to Napoleon. The themes that wind through the book include a collapse of the old chronological boundaries of Venetian history, an emphasis on fluidity and process in the study of Venetian politics and society, and the intrinsic role of art, music, and literature in fashioning the way Venetians understood and viewed themselves. The editors hope to inspire a new generation of students in a variety of fields to continue to raise new questions about the history of the Republic. Annotation c.
