Synopsis

Venice has been a laboratory of technological and architectural endeavors since its beginnings. Its very construction during the 9th century in a marshy environment hostile to human habitat represented an unrealistic gamble.

The water is now threatening its very existence. Scientists from the world over are trying by all means possible to save the city, turning it into a unique experiment using oceanography, robotics or big data. The stakes couldn’t be higher: can they save Venice and its lagoon?

At the intersection of science and technology, as well as urban planning and history, this film tells the story of 10 centuries of impossible challenges.
