Abstract

This project revealed that Venetian community life is threatened by high cost of living and housing. Through interviews and investigations on quality of life in Venice, residents expressed concern that tourism was an underlying cause for the problems in the city. One problem was the decrease in resident population. Venetians also feel that tourism is related to the rise of non-residential housing. Increase of non-residential housing, or vacation homes lowered the availability of affordable housing for Venetians.
