Abstract

Our study identified and classified green spaces on the island of Giudecca in Venice, Italy. We developed a methodology to classify each of the green spaces as Urban Wild, Park, Private Garden, or Farmland, and propose options for reutilization. As a result of our research, we explored several case studies in depth. This methodology can be implemented in other parts of Venice or its Lagoon. If implemented, our recommendations for reutilization on Giudecca would increase usable land by 31%, ultimately making for a more sustainable and greener Venice.
