Title:
Nuova pianta di Venezia = Neuer plan von Venedig
Title (alt.):
Pianta di Venezia
Description:
Venice was an important and powerful republic in Renaissance Italy, having long been a major player in trade and maritime activities. The city was also a melting pot, serving as a trading center between Europe and the Middle East and Asia. Two of Shakespeare's most tormented figures have their stories unfold in Venice. Othello, a Moor and military officer, and Shylock, a Jewish moneylender, both represent the diversity, or "otherness" that was to be found in the real-life city, as well as in Shakespeare's dramas. These two characters were perceived by the Elizabethan theater audience as having distinct morals and values – traits that were based on geographical biases that had roots dating back centuries.
