    "The chamber of commerce felt equal anger over some aspect of the taxation system. In 1836 it declared: "the port of Venice is free, but the books of the merchants are not exempt from the stamp tax ; and the registration tax, which does not exist even in Lobmardy, besides the burden it imposes, ill accords with the speed of movement that commercial transactions require". Trieste, less than half the size of Venice, continued to be exempted from taxes that the Venetian merchants were forced to pay.
    In addition, although the concession of the free port had benefited Venetian merchants, other Austrian mesures, like their persistent refusal to open a branch of the bank of Vienna at Venice, seemed deliberate snubs to hopes of the Venetian chamber of commerce. Deprived of adequate credit facilities, forced to see the trade of their city consigned to a secondary role beside that of the upstart Trieste, despondent at the unchanging nature of the Venetian manufacturing depression, Venetian businessmen grew increasingly bitter and resentful as the years passed.
    Their fellow bourgeois, the professional classes, the lawyers, doctors, university teachers, clerks and officials, had equal cause for dissatisfaction.
