Chioggia.
Twenty miles to the south of Venice,
down the narrow Lido lagoon, Chioggia j
is a miniature of the island city, but
wore medieval, less changed by time, !
and therefore more picturesque.
The trip to Chioggia In a gondola
fives one the best possible view of the
Venetian lagoons. Out upon the open
water you get a splendid impression of
the luminous immensity of the Italian
landscape. The water stretches away
blue gray to a low, dim mainland, and
beyond that the Italian Alps seem to
float in the air. Now and again you
pass a bit of an island town with its
narrow arched streets and old stone
walls, and fishing boats with gaudy
sails loiter by like lazy, bright-winged
insects.
Chioggia is but another of these lit
tle towns with a long canal running
through it where the fishing boats are
gathered in thousands, while in the
doorways along the narrow streets sit
quaintly costumed women, making lace
and mending sails. The most striking
thing about the Venetian fishing boats
is the brilliance and variety of the de
Signs upon their sails. Moons and
crescents and stars and all sorts of
other emblems are scet !n the gaudiest
colors. These are to the fisher folk
like the coats of arms and emblems of
heraldry and are hereditary- in the va
rious families. They also serve the ?
very practical purpose of letting the
good wife know her husband's boat at :
a distance, so that she can get his sup- '
per read?..
Chioggia is a city famous in the an
nals of Venice. In the fourteenth cen- '
tury when Venice and Genoa, then free |
Italian cities, were at war. the navy of:
Venice had been defeated, and the Ge- j
iiOans at Chioggfa awaited her sur
render Thereupon the people of Ven
ice were aroused to a pitch of fury
such as never had been seen before.
The ri? h came and poured their gold in
'he churches for defense until the
floors w*re covered, and the poor of- |
fered themselves for soldiers. Forty
old and outworn galleys were hauled
out and repaired and manned. A lead-j
er named Pacini, who had been thrown
into prison for suffering defeat, was
brought out and carried to the fleet on
rhe shoulders of the people He sailed
to Chioggia in the dead of night. The
Genoan fleet lay within the little land
oc*ed harbor. Then Pacini, anticipat
ing the glory of Hobson bv a few cen
turies, sunk two of his galleys in the
mouth of the harbor and held the
whole Genoese fleet a prisoner. He
waited until reinforcements came from
\ enlce and then the Genoese fleet was
destroyed and the supremacy of Ven
ice established.
