Abstract (in English)

The seven Ionion Islands (Kerkyra, Paxos, Leucada, Ithaca, Kephalonia, Zakynthos and Kythera) off the western and southern coasts of Greece have a unique place in Western cultural history. The islands were the boundary between West and East for over four hundred years. They were also where Renaissance Europe, in the form of the powerful and wealthy Venetian Republic, met the Ottoman Turkish Empire that occupied Greece and the Near East. The purpose of the paper will be to outline the characteristics of Venetian architecture and identify the local adaptations in the Ionion Islands as an example of secular Venetian colonial architecture.
