This paper aims at analysing the features and peculiarities of wool and silk industries, the two main manufacturing sectors in the cities of the Venetian mainland, between the fifteenth and the sixteenth century. Both sectors turned out to be pillars of the Venetian economy in the premodern age. By exporting semi–finished materials and cloths (both of wool and silk) to different outlets in the Italian peninsula, in Europe, and the Near East, the Venetian wool and silk industries were able to make inroads into international trade and to revitalize it.

Abstract

This paper aims at analysing the features and peculiarities of wool and silk industries, the two main manufacturing sectors in the cities of the Venetian mainland, between the fifteenth and the sixteenth century. Both sectors turned out to be pillars of the Venetian economy in the premodern age. By exporting semi–finished materials and cloths (both of wool and silk) to different outlets in the Italian peninsula, in Europe, and the Near East, the Venetian wool and silk industries were able to make inroads into international trade and to revitalize it.
