A deliciously familiar yet seemingly untouchable and magical world, Venice has an unparalleled legacy of monuments, traditions, and culture dating back more than 1600 years. From the fogs that haunt its streets to the sunlight that bathes its churches, the beautiful city of Venice exists in another time. Sumptuously illustrated with over 300 photographs, this is the Venice that guidebooks do not show—the Venice that the people who live there love best. Exploring the history, architecture, art, day-to-day life, and the hidden treasures of this beautiful city, the comprehensive scope of this attractive boxed set is what distinguishes it from others of its kind. The first volume explores the historical legends of Venice as well as the Venice of the Doges and of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. The second volume covers the city's art and architecture in depth—from St. Mark's Square to the biennales of contemporary art. In the third volume, the reader is taken inside the city itself—from its festivals, artisanal glassware, and edible delicacies, to the mythic cafés, restaurants, and bars where locals while away the day. Enticing accounts of the most memorable sights, sounds, smells, and tastes of the city make this a unique insider's resource.

The city of Venice, Italy, has been subjected to periodic flooding, or acqua alta, for centuries. Venice Shall Rise Again presents a unique proposition to halt this flooding. Based on years of work and experiment, experts Gambolati and Teatini describe an innovative yet technologically simple, economically inexpensive, and environmentally friendly project to raise Venice by 25-30 cm over ten years by injecting seawater into 650-1000 m deep geological formations. This project would be conducted under conditions of absolute safety, stability and integrity conserving the unique artistic and architectural patrimony of this deeply beloved city. Beginning with a brief history of the Venetian Republic, Venice Shall Rise Again addresses the actions undertaken by Venice to protect the city and the lagoon from the sea and land attack for more than a millennium, including the MoSE project, a system of mobile barriers presently under construction. Detailed in its engineering details and ideas, but with enough background information and context to help the interested reader understand the concepts, this book will be of interest to all readers concerned about the fate of Venice. Provides a history of the technical measures taken by the Venetian Republic to preserve the lagoon and the city or Venice Details technical specifications of a new method to secure Venice against periodic flooding
