Excerpt from Venice and Venetia For the great plain to the north Of the po, defended by that river on the south, by the Alps on the north and west, and on the east by the sea, is in itself naturally divided into two parts by the Lake of Garda and the Mincio, which runs out of it into the Po. The province, which lies to the west of the Mincio, which we call Lombardy, whose capital from time immemorial has been Milan, has always been separate from the district which lies to the east of the Mincio, which we call Venetia, as did the Romans. This last and eastern province, unlike the others which all together form the whole vast plain, guarded on three sides by the mountains and on the fourth by the sea, never made a real part of Cisalpine Gaul. It was outside the great command which Caesar held when he crossed the Rubicon to conquer Italy, and save on its north-eastern frontier it possessed then the same frontiers as it does today, when its boundaries are the Mincio, the P0 to its mouth, the Adriatic to the Austrian frontier on this side the Isonzo, and the Julian, Carnic, Dolomitic, and Rhaetian Alps.
