Title: Rulers of Venice

URL: http://rulersofvenice.org

Description: Who held office in late medieval Venice? The Rulers of Venice project as a whole attempts to answer this seemingly simple question. This site hosts a database offering access to the election records of the medieval Venetian republic. At the core of the database are the nine registers of the Segretario alle Voci, listing the noble Venetians elected to office from 1340 to 1524. There is also data from elections held in the Senate, Council of Ten, and Great Council. In total, there are over 70,000 records giving information about elections and officeholding in the medieval period.

Title: The Floating City: Public Life in Venice through the Ages

URL: https://cloud.lib.wfu.edu/blog/floatingcity/

Description: This course uses an interdisciplinary lens to observe a mosaic of views on Venice. We look at images, architectural drawings, and maps to understand the way that buildings created and framed the public spaces of the piazza; read laws, travel accounts, and journals to understand how communal and individual concerns were negotiated in these public spaces; and read plays and listen to music composed and performed in the city to understand the intersecting roles of politics, art, and culture over time.
