The subject of this article is the representation of power and "prominence" characterizing the official diplomatic relation involving the Republic of Venice and the Dutch Republic between 1610 and 1623. Such representation of power and prestige was conveyed by means of the specific language of the early modern diplomatic ceremonials. Despite being strongly ritualized, the diplomatic ceremonial could be band and modified according to the political convenience - or necessity - of the moment. The analysis of the gestures and the diplomatic titles characteristic of the official missions of the ambassadors of both republics to the respective capitals, suggests the presence of diplomatic strategy designed to provide legitimacy to the authority and prestige of the republican form of government when in Europe the monarchical-aristocratic system was still prevailing.
Keywords: Republic of Venice, Dutch Republic, diplomacy, ceremonial, diplomatic titles, ambassadors.
