|DIASPORA VENETA (VENETIANS IN
EXILE) INTERNATIONAL VENETIAN FRONT (DV-IVF) is a free
organization. We are Venetians forced to
leave our Homeland. We share the ideals and the
principles of the following declaration. We are not bound
to any governmental or political organization. We will always
respect each other as brothers and we will
oblige to the following declaration.
What is the meaning of the word VENETIANS (or VENETIAN
With this name we call all the inhabitants of the Venice
mainland (VENETIA) and of the
city of Venice, the Homeland of the People of the MOST
SERENE REPUBLIC OF VENICE. This is the true meaning of
the world VENETIANS on historical ground.
Nowadays, the Italian Region of Italy named VENETO is
just a historical fake. It is an invention of the Italian
State for administrative purposes. The boundaries of this
Region enclose only a part of the historical VENETIA, the Homeland of the
WE, THE VENETIAN PEOPLE DECLARE:
Our Homeland is the Venice mainland (Venetia). Our capital city is
VENICE. It is and it will be for ever our political,
moral and cultural capital city.
We, the Venetian people, share the same heritage and the
same glorious history of the Most Serene Republic of
Venice. We are brothers one to another.
Everywhere in the world the Venetians are
renowned for their honesty, ingenuity, industry.
We are hard workers and a law abiding people. We are
proud to show everywhere in the word our qualities.
The Kingdom of Italy first, the Italian Republic later
conquered our homeland by tricks and unlawful
actions. There is no proof that the Venetian
People freely accepted to be united to the Italian State.
On the contrary in many occasions the Venetian People
rose against the invasors and was always loyal to the
Government of the Most Serene Republic. The Italians
censored or ignored these facts.
The hardship and poverty widespread in the Venice
mainland and in the capital after the Italian invasion
and unknown during the thousand years of ruling of the
Most Serene Republic, forced the Venetian People
to emigrate. This forced emigration can be
described as an ethnical cleaning. The
beginning of this huge tragedy was in the late years of
the XIX century and never stopped.
The Kingdom of Italy and the Italian Republic exploited
the Venice mainland and the capital Venice as a
colonialist state exploits its colony. The
wealth produced in Venice and in the Venice mainland has
always been used and it is still used today to help the
finances of the battered Italian State.
The Italian State imposed the use of the
Italian language, the study of the Italian history in the
Venetian schools and the Italian symbols in order to
erase the Venetian language, history and heritage.
International treaties, signed by the Italian State,
recognize the right of the Peoples to be free and to
choose their government. But this right is denied
to the Venetian people. The Italian State uses a
double standard and rules the Venetians from Rome like a
Venice the capital and the Venice mainland are ruled by
the Italian invasors like a colony. Our capital Venice a
unique city in the world, heritage of the whole humanity is
neglected. It is crumbling down. Venice is
deprived of the big money generated by the tourism and is
left to beg for her survival.
The Kings of Savoia waged four imperialist wars in order
to conquer Italy causing deaths, poverty and sufferance
to all the Peoples of Italy. They supported criminals,
terrorists and adventurers. This is the real
history of the UNITY OF ITALY .
