Doomsday in #Venice|If we built it today. My comments and others in TV programme on Discovery Science, SKY Vision. After the recent high floods, a timely reflection on different responses.


This programme examines how Venice was built, its unique environment, problems with flooding and sinking and some possible responses. In addition to the MOSE mobile dam project, there are discussions about replicating, moving and pumping Venice up or a combination of these measures.

It was broadcast on the Discovery Science channel in the USA in September 2019 and if you have access to this channel, it can be viewed here:
