The second half of the sixteenth century therefore saw the Venetian cloth industry rise from almost nothing to become the major industry of its kind in all Italy, with an output of 28,000 cloths a year. Cloth, with other manufactures for which Venice was famous - shipbuilding, printing, glass, ceramics, sugar-refining, silk manufacture - maintained the city in prosperity until well into the next century.

As against the experience of some of her competitors, Venice had to pay the price for a relatively well-paid labour force. Its size was restricted by plague in the 1570s and afterwards; the city never again reached the size of 170,000 inhabitants attained in 1563. Workers were accordingly in a relatively strong bargaining position in an island site limited in space.

It included the steady decline of northern Italy, from whose earlier triumphs many economic skills and techniques were derived; the spectacular rise and equally spectacular decline of Spain; and, perhaps most significant of all, the swift ascent of the politically fragmented and economically ill-endowed Dutch Republic to a degree of economic maturity unprecedented in the world.
