In Venice, there are rising concerns related to the effects of cellular antennas on aesthetics and health. In collaboration with the Settore Sicurezza del Territorio, we evaluated bell tower structures to resolve this issue. By surveying all antenna and bell tower locations, we compiled data and useful information into functional databases that we created. In comparing the two locations, we found that bell towers are feasible antenna sites, and provided the Comune with motives to relocate present antennas.
