As European cities such as Venice looked further afield, not only for material goods, but also for artistic inspiration and information on new technologies and ideas, they inevitably came into contact with a great many new cultures. In this book Deborah Howard explores the experiences of Venetian merchants and travellers in the East and the influences that were brought to the city from the Islamic cultures encountered. The study is based on the literature of travellers, objects, buildings and architecture, documents and manuscripts, and takes a thematic look at the city: San Marco, the Merchant City, palaces, Palazzo Ducale, the Pilgrim City.
