"Long before Venice became a mere tourist museum with canals, it was one of the most ruthless, enduring, efficient and innovative empires of the second millennium. Growing up in the US public school system, we at Radio War Nerd naturally had no idea until recently. Luckily for us, we have the legendary RWN guest "Annibale"—who previously educated us about the Hundred Years War, the Italian Resistance in WWII and Italy's "Years Of Lead". In part one, we learn about the rise of the Republic of Venice, its sacking of Constantinople, and its gory wars with rival Republic of Genoa."
