This paper focuses on the links between history and "minor" authors, through the analysis of literary representations of Venice which are today quite forgotten: a novel, Castelnuovo’s "Dal primo piano alla soffitta" (1882) and a comedy, Gallina’s "Serenissima" (1891). Far from European literature’s cliches of the time, both focus on the Venetians and their bond with their city: they reveal the economical and sometimes even moral decadence of a venetian society that suffers from Venice’s economic decline and also from the city’s difficulties to win back an important political role in the newly united Italian kingdom. Independently from the critical opinions about their literary values, they can be read as a fascinating testimony about the cultural atmosphere in Venice at the end of the XIXth century.
Keywords: Letteratura, Storia, Venezia, Ottocento, autori minori.
