This Interdisciplinary Qualifying Project looks at the traditional boats of Venice, Italy. Traditional boats in Venice are becoming endangered and in some cases extinct, because of the inception and growing popularity of the motor boat. Venetians have always had a special relationship with their boats because of Venice's unique environment. Through maps and databases we examine the entire traditional boat community in Venice with an aim of preventing the loss of traditional boats to Venice.
