UNST 325 - The City on Water (Venice Study Group)
Focuses on the exceptional character of Venice as a city built on water. An examination of the environmental setting of the Lagoon of Venice and traces the long history of the city’s development from its origins to the present day. Special attention is paid to the on-going give-and-take between the city and the sea, which has resulted in the complete transformation of the lagoon over the centuries, and the challenge of ‘saving’ a city at sea level from flooding in the 21st century.
