In addition to Armenians, Jews and Muslims, Venice also hosted the communities of Greeks and Dalmatians who found hospitality and refuge in the lagoon city. In particular, the Greeks in the fourteenth century due to the Turkish invasion of their homeland, and the Dalmatians in the fifteenth century due to the natural cultural, political and economic mix that linked them to the Serenissima. To understand the history of the Venetian hospitality of these communities and their cultural contribution to the city, we will visit the Church of San Giorgio dei Greci, the Museum of Byzantine icons and the Dalmatian School of San Giorgio degli Schiavoni (which collects among others the masterpieces by Vittore Carpaccio).
