Venice Backstage- an interesting video

An interesting video on a truly unique city-

http://vimeo.com/21688538

"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?"

You're welcome! I had read about much of what the video covers, but found the video much easier to understand than what I had read.

Really interesting to see this backstage stuff. I'll look at Venice with slightly different eyes now.
