Francesco Morosini, Warrior Doge: Venice and the end of empire with Jonathan Keates
Francesco Morosini (1619-1694) was Venice’s last great doge. Fighting the Turks in the Peloponnese, he brought us – indirectly – the Elgin Marbles and gave Venice its final burst of prestige as a Mediterranean power. Jonathan Keates evokes the thrilling yet also tragic career of this compelling figure – not forgetting the favourite cat he took everywhere on his campaigns.
Jonathan Keates is Chairman of Venice in Peril Fund
