157 – Venice out of the middle ages and into uncertainty (1454 – 1492)

After the peace of Lodi, the relative stability on the peninsula allows Venice to concentrate on the Ottomans again and the inevitable first war breaks out in 1463.

Before that, we see one of the few doge’s to actually be deposed, Francesco Foscari a record breaking doge for various reasons and sexy actor in “The Medici” Tv series.

Then, when Venice reaches a rather humiliating peace with the Turks, it seems like a perfect time to them to start the war of Ferrara from 1480 to the peace of Bagnolo in 1484.

Then it’s time to make their way out of the Middle Ages with dark clouds looming on the horizon.
