Venice defeats Genoa in the Chioggia War . In Count Amadeus VI. The Treaty of Turin brokered by Savoy does not completely exclude Genoa from the concert of the maritime republics , but it has to bow to Venetian supremacy, especially in the eastern Mediterranean. Internal disputes between the Guelfs and Ghibellines continue to weaken Genoa. The city of Chioggia will never fully recover from the devastation of war. The local salt industry, which was already in crisis before the war, collapses completely and only covers its own needs. The city's seafarers limited themselves to lagoon and coastal fishing. The city, which flourished until 1379, came under Venetian control in the 15th century.
