Anniversary of the Foundation of Venice 421 -2021 - 1600 years of history.
Due to the lack of historical documents of the time, the origins of Venice are not perfectly datable.
It is known for certain that the city was born Byzantine and tried to remain so in time. The Chronicon Altinate, one of the oldest manuscripts that explain the history of Venice, states that the first settlement in Rialto (from the Latin Rivus Altus, means "deep channel") dates back to 421 AD.The document is from the eleventh century and it does not have absolute historical value but it is said that the 25th of March 421 was laid the foundation stone of the San Giacomo Church ("San Giacometo") in Rialto.
