Context: Lucca, Venice, Florence, Bologna, and Genoa are known to have been the principal silk weaving cities in Italy during the 14th and 15th centuries. It is not possible, however, to distinguish which silks were woven in each city. Silks like these were sold to royalty, nobility, and churches throughout Europe by Italian merchants in Bruges, Antwerp, Paris, London, and Avignon.
