"The floating city has only been part of  Italy for 150 years. The 1000
year-old democratic Serenissima Repubblica di  Venezia, was quashed by
Napoleon and was subsumed into Italy in  1866."

Actually, Italy has only been part of Italy for about 150 years.  It existed 
for the first time as a unified, independent country, with anything 
resembling its current borders, as a result of various wars fought between 
1848 and 1866.  Napoleon's brother-in-law ruled southern Italy as King of 
Naples for a few years in the early 19th century.
