Expanding The Arsenal of Venice

In 1320, the “Nuovo Arsenale” was added on to the Arsenal of Venice.  The Nuovo Arsenale digresses from the Byzantine design of the former “Arsenale Vecchio” as well as provides much more room for producing and maintaining the growing merchant and militant navy.  The Nuovo Arsenale helped the Venetian Empire build more ships at a faster pace than before.  This picture is okay to use because this file is licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 3.0 Unported license.  Source: http://www.aviewoncities.com/venice/arsenale.htm
