We can see why the relationship of Rialto-Venice to the environment in which the city was born and then grew was not the object of analysis for a long time. Any reflection on this matter was influenced by the radical transformation of balances within the lagoons and the establishment of the Venetian metropolis.

VENICE AND ITS SURROUNDINGS Elisabeth Crouzet-Pavan When used in its plural form, the term “Venice” long referred to two distinct geographical realities between Grado and Cavarzere. It first referred to the city which became the capital following the transfer of the ducal seat to Rialto, a populated and lively agglomeration located in the middle of the lagoons, the head of a state and an empire. But it also referred to the administrative duchy established during Byzantine Italy, the lands and waters, islands and barrier spits on which the capital city imposed its domination.

The popular fascination with Venice was satiated by John Julius Norwich’s A History of Venice, a fine enough treatment of Venetian history in the political and diplomatic narrative tradition. In France, while not a history of Venice per se, the centrality of the city in one of the great works of 20th-century historiography, Fernand Braudel’s The Mediterranean and the Mediterranean World in the Age of Philip II, first published in 1949 with a revised edition in 1966, certainly contributed to this resurgence.
