Grain was carried to Naples and Messina, and from Civitavecchia the Dutch procured alum, wine, olives, and semi-tropical fruits. Next to Livorno, and perhaps as important for the Dutch as Genoa, was Venice, their voyages there probably beginning before the end of the sixteenth century. In 1609 the Dutch sent an ambassador to the Venetian republic, Cornelis van der Mijle, Curator of the University of Leyden and son-in-law of Oldenbarnevelt. Later, in 1620, the States sent Francoys van Aerssen, and the Venetians sent (in 1616) Christofforo Suriano to The Hague.
