Chapter 4 discusses the transformation of the city under Venetian rule, a moment when the city achieved a very precise physiognomy, being endowed by powerful city walls and characterized by the presence of a series of Venetian type architectural forms. This 'Venetian' fashion is also reproduced in various components of the city's and regions' material culture, such as domestic items like glass and pottery.
