A world of Trust: practices and codes of the preindustrial time

Please note that the job is no longer active!

The project aims to analyse the role of informal institutions, with particular reference to use of trust in trades and international relations in the preindustrial time. The case study that will be use is Venice. Thanks to its medieval heritage, the city had built a broad system of legal representation between Asia and Europe, that allowed Venetian merchants to have the protection they needed in order to trade. The success of Venetian merchants in the trade between Asia and Europe made of Venice one of the main gateways between East and West during the medieval age and the early modern period. Venetians were involved in the long-distance trade that allowed oriental spices and goods to arrive on the European ports in order to be sold to the richest part of the population. In return, European objects were exported on the middle East ports, and from there, they were then transported until the continental Asia.
