VENICE / Venice Project Center
Venice's demographics and number of visitors have been changing drastically over the past years, with its population declining and tourists increasing. To understand how these changes correlate to changes in the stores of Venice, this project noted and compiled the changes in stores within five sestieri of Venice when compared to the database of the stores made by WPI students in past years. The project compiled a single comprehensive database, including pictures of all of the stores of Venice, in the fall of 2012. The project created web pages for each type of Venetian store and for every store in Venice for the website Venipedia. Finally, the project analyzed the trends in stores and accommodations of Venice in relation to the trends in the residents and tourists.
