The city of Venice in Italy has played an important role in the development of the music of Italy (see Venice italy map). The Venetian state – i.e., the medieval Maritime Republic of Venice – was often popularly called the "Republic of Music", and an anonymous Frenchman of the 17th century is said to have remarked that "In every home, someone is playing a musical instrument or singing. There is music everywhere in Venice.
Venice remained Italy fashion capital, and was a serious contender to Paris in terms of wealth, architecture, luxury, taste, sophistication, trade, decoration, style, and design (see Venice italy map). Venice is also a major fashion and shopping centre in Italy, not as important as Milan, Florence, or Rome, but par to Turin, Vicenza, Naples, and Genoa.
The city of Venice was the location for one of Italy earliest printing presses, established by Aldus Manutius (1449–1515). From this beginning Venice developed as an important typographic center (as you can see in Venice italy map) and even as late as the 18th century was responsible for printing half of Italy published books.
