2 June 1403, the Venice Senate decided to fortify the city of Durres

The Venetian Senate, assembled on June 2, 1403, reviewed the state of its possessions in the arboreal lands and decided to fortify the city of Durres, “so that the land and the sea could be preserved and saved “. Likewise, the Senate instructed its people to fortify Buna’s mouth as an important navigable artery and trade and as a venue for hosting Venetian galleries. On the other hand, he saw with suspicion and fear, the plan of the Albanian count Nikola Topia, Kruja’s lord, who intended to build a fort in the area of Saint Mark near Durrës. The Senate commands its own people, for any reason to forbid such a thing, that it risks Venetian possessions in the arboreal lands.
