The article examines the way the Keeper of the Library of St Mark, Jacopo Morelli, managed to defend the library as much as he could under three different governments: Venetian, French and Austrian. Morelli collaborates with the representatives of each government while seeking to secure the most precious treasures of "his" library and obtain a selectio of manuscripts and books from the secularized religious houses thus exceedingly incrementing the number of volumes of the Library of St Mark.
