Abstract

On December 1st, 2008 156cm of water flooded Venice, threatening to repeat the devastation of the flood of 1966. Our project published, in an engaging web format, comprehensive information, such as condition, about the vast collection of art endangered by natural and man-made threats. We followed best practices for web-design and features from other conservation- and community-oriented websites. The resulting PreserVenice.org website will help preserve the 4,376 pieces of art that delineate Venice and are integral to Venice's cultural infrastructure.
