VENICE / Venice Projects Program

Abstract

We contributed to the creation of PreserVenice, a crowdfunded association dedicated to preserving Venetian heritage. We cataloged more inscriptions to further complete the Venice Project Center database and calculated initial cost estimates of each category of public art for future restorations. Additionally, we redesigned the PreserVenice website aesthetically and functionally, improving the artifact search tools and providing a more contemporary, clean appearance. Finally, we started a social media presence for the organization, and left proposals for future job opportunities and a streamlined restoration process. Our project improved upon the past eleven years of work on PreserVenice, and provided the company with the tools it needs for future success.
