Abstract: This work explores Venice - not the glorious Venice of the Venetian Republic, but from the fall of the Republic in 1797 and the Risorgimento up through the present day. The author draws out major themes: the increasingly anachronistic but deeply embedded Catholic Church, and the two faces of modernization, consumerism versus culture.
