The Venetian Arsenal was a revolutionary shipbuilding and manufacturing facility developed in Medieval Venice that was centuries ahead of its time. It has been called the first factory in the world by some historians for its modern concepts of efficiency, quality control, and production.

The Arsenal played its biggest role during the decisive Battle of Lepanto in 1571, one of the largest naval battles in history. Learn how the Holy League victory at Lepanto owed a great deal to the innovations and unrivaled production conceived at the Venetian Arsenal.
