Abstract

This Interdisciplinary Qualifying Project focuses on the nautical heritage of Venice, Italy, and is a continuation of a project completed in 2004. The introduction of motorboats has resulted in dwindling usage of traditional boats in Venice. To increase awareness to this important aspect of the city's heritage, we created a catalog and map of nautical elements throughout Venice, including 33 items. In addition, we created multiple inventories of boat-related items at Arzana, our sponsor, which included a total of 752 items.
