Its FRANCOIS HOLLANDE that Venice needs to worry about! On 23 August 1866, in the Treaty of Prague, the Emperor of Austria transferred Venice to the Emperor of the French Napoleon III, who in a separate treaty, legally transferred Venice to King Victor Emmanuel of Italy.
THEREfore, if Venice secedes from Italy, by law it AUTOMATICALLY must be annexed to France! And Francois Hollande is ready for it! Oh yes, he's making the ADRIATIC PIVOT, releasing La Grande Armee from Mali and the Central African Republic to swiftly seize the San Marco Square and brutally guillotin any treacherous secessionists woh dare resist!
Vive La France! Vive l'Empereur Francois I!!! Et mort a Venese!
