The Challenge of VeniceThe Challenge of Venice
Venice faces major challenges to its survival due to rising waters and sinking land.

The Challenge of Venice (Michele Barca, Nicola Pittarello, Italy, 2013; 60 min.) An inextricable relationship links Venice to her salty, fresh and brackish waters, an inexhaustible resource, yet at the same time, a threat to the city's survival. Regulating the water has always formed a part of the city's history, and over the centuries has involved both major and minor interventions in the lagoon in order to maintain it's delicate balance.
