The Boundaries of Venice

The goal of The Boundaries of Venice is to investigate different historical political borders of Venice in order to provide information to Venetian legislators and citizens seeking to define a potential boundary between Estuario and Terraferma for a future split. Objectives -Locate and catalogue the physical markers of the lagoon boundary placed during the Republic of Venice. -Study the Napoleonic and Austro-Hungarian Cadastres to understand post-Republic of Venice territorial organizations. -Investigate referendum-related separation boundaries. -Collect economic, demographic and geomorphological data relevant for future boundary redefinitions. -Design an interactive tool to visualize the economic and geomorphological change alongside the mapped borders between Mestre and Venice.
