About the Battle of Chioggia:
The conflict takes its name from the fishing port town of Chioggia. The Genoese were reinforced by the Hungarians and Paduans, and suddenly and unexpectedly they attacked the south end of the lagoon, brought her fleet into the channels of the lagoon and, with her allies, stormed and captured Chioggia on 16 August 1379.By mid-August 1379 the allies had Venice encircled.
The Venetian senate applied for peace, but when the Genoese replied that they were resolved to "bit and bridle the Horses of Saint Mark" the Venetians decided to fight to the end. All Venetian reserves were mobilized and Vittor Pisani(the heroe of the history), imprisoned after the battle of Pola, was released by popular demand.
