The Domini di Terraferma or Stato da Tera (literally, the mainland domains or mainland state) was the name given to the territories of the Republic of Venice conquered in the PadanoVeneto hinterland.

These Domini, along with the Dogado and Stato da Màr, were the three subdivisions of the Venetian state. At its greatest extent, it included Veneto, Friuli and parts of Lombardy, bounded only by the River Po, the Adda River, the Alps and the Carso.

On the fall of the Republic and the Treaty of Campo Formio, the Domini spent a short while under French rule until Napoleon ceded it to Austria in 1797, and in 1815 the former Domini were united with the Napoleonic Kingdom of Italy (1805–14) in 1815 and with what was left of Lombardy to make the Kingdom of Lombardy-Venetia under the control of the Austrian Empire.

They were one of the three subdivisions of the Republic's possessions, the other two being the Dogado ("Duchy") and the Stato da Màr ("Sea State").
