Serenissima Repubblica di Venezia - animated gif


This is the time-lapse of the territorial evolution of the Serenissima, the republic of Venice, the longest lingering repubblic in all human history. The time is proportional to the real possession of the regions by Venice (1 year = 10 milliseconds). I'm enjoying animated gifs, did you notice? hehe

I made also a version in which the time is not proportional to history but in which is better visible all the territorial changes. just click here. or also another bigger version in which 1 second is 10 years (it's really slower), if you want to watch it just click here.
