Venice is the lagoon

the health of Venice depends on the health of the lagoon system and vice versa
The city and the lagoon are inseparable elements of a single system. For almost two millennia, there have been various kinds of coexistence, and constant tension, between human interventions and natural dynamics within this unique context. From the 1960s a different scale of problems has afflicted the city, and the lagoon which surrounds it, on a social, economic, administrative, fiscal and environmental level. Our mission is to return the lagoon and the natural capital it accommodates to the centre of considerations affecting the future of Venice as a living city.
