Italian Merchants and the Treasures of the East: An Early Example of Economic Globalisation
Thanks to the unification of a large part of the Asian continent under the Mongol Empire, Genoese and Venetian merchants were able to travel the silk roads fairly freely between 1250 and 1350. This was a century of intense trade and exchange between East and West, which was to strengthen the two worlds' mutual knowledge, and in which Italy played a pioneering role in establishing a trade network on a global scale.
