This project explored various dimensions of change in the availability of food in Venice using a triangulated research method, with the purpose of developing a comprehensive understanding of the variables affecting the transformation of retail within the last fifty years. By contrasting and complementing empirical data in the form of charts, maps, and databases with the oral and written testimonies of Venetian citizens, a greater awareness of the existing dynamics was obtained and presented through a documentary video.
