This project examined the evolution of Venetian shops and the decline of residential comfort by exploring the impact of economic changes in Venice through the cataloging of current shops and their transformations over time and proposes methods for the improvement of residential comfort in the city. An original methodology was produced in addition to databases and map layers created using data collected by the team. This study provides the groundwork for other studies on retail tourism and residential comfort.
