Background History

The event takes place in Venice, the most beautiful city in the world!


The capital of the Veneto region, it is situated across a group of 118 small islands that are separated by canals and linked by bridges, more than 400.


Parts of Venice are renowned for the beauty of their settings, their architecture and artwork. The lagoon and a part of the city are listed as a World Heritage Site.


The city was historically the capital of The Republic of Venice, which was a major financial and maritime power during the Middle Ages and Renaissance and a staging area for the Crusades and the Battle of Lepanto, as well as a very important centre of commerce and art in the XIII century up to the end of XVII century.


The City State of Venice is considered to have been the first real international financial centre which gradually emerged from the IX century to its peak in the XIV century. This made Venice a wealthy city through most of its history.
