Venice and the First World War

In 1915 Italy declared war on Austria Hungary. Richard Bassett looks at the consequences of this for the city of Venice.

After explaining how Italy came to declare war on her erstwhile ally Austria-Hungary, Richard Bassett will offer insights into a period which was one of great trial for Venice. Direct intervention by Empress Zita prevented its systematic bombing but the aerial offensive was resumed in 1917 with dramatic consequences for the city.
