About L'Arsenale di Venezia

Basic Information:


The Arsenal of Venice have a very large part of the islands in Venezia and it was the heart of the shipbuilding industry in the twelfth century. It is linked to the most flourishing period of the life of the Serenissima Repubblica di Venezia thanks to the massive ships build here. Venezia was also able to fight the Turks in the Aegean Sea and reaching the northern European routes.

For centuries the Arsenal of Venice had the modern factory conception as a complex production including very well prepared and skill workers, preparations of assembling a manufactured article along an assembly line and using standard components. The Arsenal of Venice is extending over 46 hectares area, while the number of workers (the Arsenalotti) reached during the periods of high production activity, the average of 1500-2000 units daily (with a peak of 4500-5000 recorded in Book of workers), which is from 2% to 5% of the urban population of the city in these ages (it was at about 100,000 inhabitants).

The spacious rooms of Corderie dell'Arsenale are currently used as one of the venues of the Biennale of Venice, as well as some small shipbuilding activities and other minor activities.


One of the places in Venice that is very well saved for more than 300 years is the Arsenal of Venice. Take a look at the picture of the famous Venetian painter Canaleto - View of the Entrance to the Arsenal, 1732.
