    Convivium VII/1 (2020) focuses on Venice as extraordinary commercial and artistic clearinghouse during its rise and triumph as a cultural hub. Too often, the artistic development of Venice is seen as dependent exclusively on Constantinople and the Byzantine tradition. By emphasizing the role of Venice as a cultural hub, we would like to shift the focus onto the processes, opportunities and contexts that produced monuments and works of art, which reveal the intense cultural exchange fostered in the city by commerce and trade. The horizons of the artistic ambitions of Venice, a city at the center of a vast web, were wide: from Byzantium and the larger Mediterranean world to Northern Europe, Hungary, Austria, France, all the way to Spain and Portugal.
