Francesco Foscari

Because of the high costs of his policy, which mainly consisted of war costs, but also costs for the construction work in the city, such as the redesign of the Doge's Palace and the construction of the fortress on the island of Vignole to protect the Lido , on October 23 the Venetian doge Francesco Foscari deposed. His successor will be Pasquale Malipiero , who will be named Prince of Peace. Francesco himself survived this humiliation only a few days. His funeral takes place in the Frari Church with all the honors due to a Doge and the participation of the population was extremely high.
