The Most Serene Republic of Venice was the longest republic ever lived, it lasted for 1100 years: from 697 A. D. to 1797 A. D.

The Serenissima is the name of the republic itself, it wasn't the most serene republic

The Most Serene Republic is the commonly used translation for Serenissima, as long as a literal translation for "Serenissima" doesn't exist, "Most Serene Republic" is used when speaking about Venice and other European states through history. Indeed the only nation that's still called that way is the Republic of San Marino, unofficially called the "Most Serene Republic of San Marino".

Yes, what I am saying is that the name "Serenissima" is the exact denomination of the state and so it doesn't have to be translated. Hope I've made this understandable ;)

As long as there is a specific term used when referring to the Republic of Venice, used as translation of "Serenissima" even if it 's not the literal translation, there is no need to use the Italian word.

Why not? I mean it is the name that characterises that particular state in that particular span of time and most importantly it instantly reminds to what the republic was. To me it is a way to preserve the story behind the name and having it internationalized it just makes it no more deeply chained to Venice

Because the "Most Serene Republic of Venice" is how it has always been called by english speakers.

Wait, they occupied parts of the Crimean peninsula? Crazy. Got to look into that more, that little piece of land has a surprisingly turbulent history.

While reading the book "A Brief History of Time" written by Stephen Hawking I kept noticing the fact that nowadays we have the ability to study and appreciate the works of great thinkers of the past (distant and not so distant) thanks to their desire to record all that. Conversely, how many ideas did not get the deserved attention just because they weren't recorded in any form? Now we are living in the age when recording and sharing your ideas has never been easier in history. Furthermore, thanks to the tools that we now have, those ideas have the potential to reach the people who are looking for them. Something that might seem obvious and simple to you might just as well inspire someone or make their day a bit better.

Also, think about the ideas and thoughts people had in history that were actually recorded in some form, but were lost over time, because their value was not appreciated at some point to make them be considered worth it for conservation.
