Italian Murano Glass Beads

what was the importance of venice in the 1500's in trading terms?

how was venice involved in trading and was it important at all
between the 1500's and the 1600's

Despite the setbacks in the struggle against the Turks, at the end of 15th century, with 180,000 inhabitants, Venice was the second largest city in Europe after Paris and probably the richest in the world.

Venice became rich on trade, but the guilds in Venice also produced superior silks, brocades, goldsmith jewelry and articles, armour and glass in the form of beads and eyeglasses. The Murano glass industry, facing competition in crystal glass by northern European countries, moved to Venice and employed women in bead manufacturing and immigrants from Friuli in the production of small-size mirrors. Glass beads were shipped to the Levant and Western Europe for re-export to the colonies, while mirror plates were sold mainly to the Italian market.

The industrial sector actually took advantage of Venice’s commercial power, which could easily provide raw materials and sell the finished products on international markets. Thet urban silk industry in the seventeenth century adjusted to the changing market remained competitive. Fewer high quality cloths were woven and Lyons fabrics were copied and exported to the East where Venice still enjoyed an undisputed supremacy. At the same time, cheap female labor gradually replaced that of guild workers. Although they were unable to innovate in terms of technology and fashion, trade guilds never opposed the introduction of technical innovations or foreign technicians and weavers and were able to adapt to an evolving market.

The Venetian part in the spice trade was greatly decreased at the beginning of the sixteenth century because of limitations on trade with Syria and Egypt imposed by the new Ottoman regime, and rivalry from direct Portuguese shipments from Asia as a consequence of Vasco de Gama exploring a direct sea route to India and the rest of Asia, around Cape Horn – the southern point of Africa. In this era of new discoveries, Venice's influence on trade route and other countries decreased and it's overall power as a city state in Europe was immensely reduced.
