Le origini di Venezia / 威尼斯溯源 / The Origins of Venice
The origins of Venice represent a particularly fascinating area of study, as it is one of the very few Italian cities born in the Middle Ages. In Roman times, Venice (in Latin Venetia et Histria) was a vast region of the empire that stretched from Istria to the river Adda. After the fall of the reign founded in Italy by the Goths of Theoderic in 553, Venice became part of the Roman Empire, whose seat was then in Byzantium. However, the arrival of the Lombards (569) in Italy brought about significant changes and within a few decades they had conquered almost the entire North of Italy.
