The history of the Greek world during the period of the Venetian domination (13th-18th century) is a fascinating history.
This course offers you an insight into the interaction that took place in the Greek-speaking territories of the Eastern Mediterranean between two superpowers of the late Middle Ages: the Byzantijne Empire and the Venetian Empire. We will focuss on the architecture, the material culture and urban space of the Venetian colonies in the Eastern Mediterranean and try to understand how their built environments express the close cultural ties with both Venice and Byzantium.
