Venice in Peril

CANCELLED 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 the Chairman of Venice in Peril
