How does Venice work? Venice Backstage: 124 Islands, 183 Canals & 438 Bridges

The 118 islands scattered over the lagoon inside the Venetian Bay are connected with about 400 bridges. The waterway between the island and the island becomes an important transportation route, forming a unique city, often called the 'City of Water'.

Venice is not just a stage set. It is also a city with a resident population, which has productive activities, transportation and services. But how does the “Venice system” work? How do the tides in the lagoon behave? How are the canals formed? And the embankments? What’s under the buildings? 

These techniques have been worked out over Venice's 1500 year history, and now they're explored in a captivating 17 minute video produced by a Venetian government agency. You can learn more about the inner life of this great city at Venice Backstage.
