The Reutilization of the Venetian Lagoon project, sponsored by the Environmental Department of the City of Venice, examined thirty-two small islands within the lagoon. Through the collection of previously existing information and the integration of data collected in the field, the project team compiled extensive records with respect to the islands. Reutilization plans were developed through the analysis of architectural surveys, mapped ecosystems, previous proposals and zoning and environmental policies, while maintaining the total sustainability of the Venetian lagoon. Recommended island reutilizations include medical facilities, agricultural lands, and recreational parks.
