This exquisite antique hand-colored map was published by Covens & Mortier circa 1720 and depicts the Republic of Venice, which encompassed Northeastern Italy from 697 AD to 1797 AD. The small Italian nation rose to prominence during the Middle Ages through it's control of trade routes between the Middle East and Europe. By the 18th century, the economic influence of the Republic of Venice was in decline. This map captures the once-powerful nation during its twilight years
