Antique map of Venice. Vintage map of Venice (Italy) to print. Vintage map of Venice (Italy) to download. While there are no historical records that deal directly with the obscure and peripheral origins of vintage Venice (see the vintage map of Venice), tradition and the available evidence have led several historians to agree that the original population of vintage Venice consisted of refugees from Roman cities near Venice such as Padua, Aquileia, Treviso, Altino and Concordia (modern Portogruaro) and from the undefended countryside, who were fleeing successive waves of Germanic and Hun invasions.
Some late Roman sources reveal the existence of fishermen on the vintage islands of Venice in the original marshy lagoons as its shown in the vintage map of Venice. They were referred to as incolae lacunae ("lagoon dwellers"). The traditional founding of vintage Venice is identified with the dedication of the first church, that of San Giacomo at the islet of Rialto (Rivoalto, "High Shore"), which is said to have been at the stroke of noon on 25 March 421.
