A.   Introduction (within 500 words, Chinese or English)
  This conference challenges the idea that the Republic of Venice knew no popular unrest during the late medieval and early modern period. While other Italian and non-Italian states went through cycles of revolts and violent uprisings, Venice alone seemed immune to class struggles. Its ruling elite remained in power for a thousand years, until the French invasion of 1797. The image of Venice as La Serenissima, the most serene republic, was first publicized by Venetian humanists and is still one of the most enduring myths in European history. Within the context of European history and the broader debate about politics from below, Venice thus continues to function as the exception to the rule. This conference on unrest in Venice aims to throw new light of the nature and workings of the Venetian state and Venetian politics.
