Storyboard Text

  • Here in Venice, traders can gain massive wealth by selling goods from their friends from the Ottoman Empire and Persia
  • Many of these goods are very different from what Venice usually trades. A lot of these things are cooler that boring old soap and cotton.
  • Venice relied on the Ottomans for many luxury goods. 
  • Venice's merchant galleries normally carried spices, soap, cotton, and industrial supplies before the introduction to Ottoman goods.
  • The Ottoman Empire traded goods like carpets, velvet, silk, glass,porcelain, gilded books, and illustrated writings 
  • Now who wouldn't want to come to Venice to gain wealth as a merchant?
  • The Venetian traders had nautical expertise and the Islamic traders relied on their ships for the extension of their trade routes.
  • Together they became co-superpowers of trade in the Mediterranean because they relied on each other. Venice became influenced by Islamic art and politics. They also adopted the Islamic number system.
  • With the new numbers trade was made easier. The Venetians now could also measure and weigh the product to determine its price to keep things fair.
