1352, after five full years of death and devastation due to the “Black Plague” the cries of Bring out your dead are slowly fading. Venetian society has been thrown into chaos, economies have crumbled, art and literature have taken a turn for the gruesome and bizarre and the working class has begun to voice dissatisfaction with their daily wages.
It is now time to begin again. We must rid ourselves of the last ravages of the plauge, we must sweep away the little dead rat bodies, we must burn the fabrics and trappings in our homes that gave safe haven to the vile sickness and we must begin our lives again.
Come and see the beautiful city of Venice reclaim her rightful place as a jewel of the Adriatic.
