Synopsis

Relazioni degli ambasciatori Veneti al senato by Eugenio Alberi

These editions of reports sent back by Venetian ambassadors to the Great Council of the Republic in the sixteenth century were edited by Eugenio Alberi (1807-78) and published between 1839 and 1863. As Alberi notes in his preface, a law of 1296 decreed that all embassies and legations should submit a written report to the Council at the end of their mission, and the surviving records provide an invaluable resource for political and economic historians. The fifteen volumes are divided into three series, on relations with European states outside Italy; with other Italian states; and with the Ottoman Empire. Volume 6 (Volume 2 of the third series), published in 1844, covers relations with the Ottoman Empire between the 1560s and the 1580s, including the period of Turkey's wars against the Persian Empire and the Christian kingdom of Georgia. One report comes from the Venetian consul in Aleppo, Syria.
