History of Campo manin at Venice
Manin Square: This lively square, completely rebuilt in 1869 after the destruction of a church, a bell tower of the 10th c. And old houses, is surrounded only by palaces of the late nineteenth century. The statue located at the famous center Daniele Manin (1804-1857), revolutionary, imprisoned by the Austrians in 1848, liberated by the people of Venice and proclaimed President of the Republic of Venice. But the Austrians returned to the city in 1849 in spite of a heroic defense, after 18 months of siege, during which the population suffered from starvation and cholera. Manin went into exile in France, where he died in poverty.
