The main challenge in maintaining a peaceful interaction between the subjects of the Serenissima and those of the Ottoman Empire was, in the narrow region of Dalmatia, based on the respect of the peace agreements and the territorial possessions. The border between the empires, unstable anyway, became by the end of the 16th century the sparkle for a new military confrontation between the Ottomans and the Habsburgs, in fact a new Late Crusade.
