While there are no historical records that deal directly with the obscure and peripheral origins of Venice (see Venice historical map), tradition and the available evidence have led several historians to agree that the original population of Venice consisted of refugees from Roman cities near Venice such as Padua, Aquileia, Treviso, Altino and Concordia (modern Portogruaro) and from the undefended countryside, who were fleeing successive waves of Germanic and Hun invasions.[

The Republic lost independence when Napoleon Bonaparte conquered Venice on 12 May 1797 during the First Coalition. The French conqueror brought to an end the most fascinating century of its history: during the 18th century Venice became perhaps the most elegant and refined city in Europe as its shown in Venice historical map, greatly influencing art, architecture and literature. Napoleon was seen as something of a liberator by the historical city Jewish population, although it can be argued they had lived with fewer restrictions in Venice.

Venice became Austrian territory when Napoleon signed the Treaty of Campo Formio on 12 October 1797. The Austrians took control of the historical city of Venice on 18 January 1798. It was taken from Austria by the Treaty of Pressburg in 1805 and became part of Napoleon Kingdom of Italy, but was returned to Austria following Napoleon defeat in 1814, when it became part of the Austrian-held Kingdom of Lombardy-Venetia as its mentioned in Venice historical map.

From the ninth to the twelfth century Venice developed into a vintage city state (an Italian thalassocracy or Repubblica Marinara, the other three being Genoa, Pisa, and Amalfi). Its strategic position at the head of the Adriatic made Venetian naval and commercial power almost invulnerable. With the elimination of pirates along the Dalmatian coast, the vintage city of Venice became a flourishing trade center between Western Europe and the rest of the world (especially the Byzantine Empire and the Islamic world as its shown in Venice vintage map).

During the events of 1968, there were long occupations by students of the architecture faculty in the vintage city of Venice as well as massive strikes by workers at Port Marghera. The 1968 film festival was also the scene of large protests. Later the Socialists ran the city, but their plans for massive development, including a world fair proposed in the mid-1980s, were blocked by protests over possible damage to the city as its mentioned in Venice vintage map. Socialist rule was swept away by corruption scandals in the 1990s, allowing the victory of a reformist intellectual mayor, Massimo Cacciari, who attempted to modernize Venice while protecting its immense heritage.

In a broad sense, the entire history of Venice has been that of a struggle to control and utilize the environment, and indeed the most urgent problems confronting the present-day city are environmental. In the second half of the 20th century, the deterioration of vintage buildings and art treasures, which had long been associated with natural phenomena such as flooding and subsidence, was intensified by an atmosphere laden with sulfuric acid, much of it generated by industrial and domestic smoke (see Venice vintage map).
