The fight of Italy against water

After yet another tragic flooding in Sardinia, Italy keeps interrogating itself about the safety of its territory.

Decades of bad landscape management and undeterred building have altered the hydraulic equilibrium, with frequent flooding events and landslides.

Moreover, Italy is nearly surrounded by the sea, and as we all know the sea level is slowly raising.

The Government is building around Venice the first-ever mobile dams system in the world trying to shield the city. It costed nearly 5 billion euros already, and it’s not completed yet.
