It is pretty much easy to recognize which places in Italy have been under the rule of the Venetian Republic. Practicyly all the major sights of the town or its administrative buildings from that period are marked by the relief of Venetian Lion.
There are two different reliefs; one where lion holds open book and the other with closed book. If the book is opened, it was the time of peace, negotiations and prosperity; if the book is closed, it is the time of the war.
