Venice, Italy contains over 4,230 pieces of public art that must be maintained and restored to preserve the ancient culture. Past students have created a multimedia catalog containing each piece with physical information and condition assessments. The catalog was completed through this project with the incorporation of monuments. The Association for the Preservation of Venetian Public Art was created in order to use the vast amounts of information in the catalog to preserve each piece of public art in Venice.
