Alvise Giovanni Mocenigo (1701–1778) was doge of Venice from 1763 until his death.

Political career[edit]

He restricted the privileges of the clergy and, in consequence, came into bitter conflict with Pope Clement XIII.

In trying to spur on the economy, he made important commercial agreements with Tripoli, Tunisia, Morocco, the Russian Empire, and with America.

He died on December 31, 1778. He was married in 1739 to Pisana Cornaro (d. 1769) and in 1771 to Polissena Contarini Da Mula.[1]
