Which countries were in "The Merchant of Venice"?
1 Answer | Add Yours
The play takes place in Italy. Venice, as the title clearly implies, is the principal location and the only other is Belmont, home of Portia. Belmont is a very widespread placename in romance language countries but this particular Belmont is obviously in Italy and within relatively easy reach of Venice, albeit by sea.
