VENICE / Venice Projects Program
Centro Progetti Venezia
Venice’s mainland and lagoon regions are polarized due to their economic and demographic differences. The regions, formerly divided by many historical borders of Venice, are now merged into one city. There have been unsuccessful referendums to divide Venice into two cities. No referendum came along with a border which would be used in a Venetian separation, so citizens were unable to view the implications of a split. Our project focuses on researching historical borders and viewing the statistics for each city created by a division of Venice. We created a tool that allows users to see the data arising from a separation of Venice along historical or user-made borders. This information will help Venetian citizens to make an educated decision as to where a boundary should divide Venice.
