Join Angela Cacciarru and discover three fascinating cities -Venezia (Venice), Chioggia and Comacchio- with a common element: beautiful canals which wind through the cities and create their unique characters.

These exquisite cities built above and around canals bring us close to one of the most important elements of our planet: water, the source of life, connection, leisure, and beauty. In this online lecture, you will take a virtual tour of these romantic cities, deeply experiencing the beauty of their canals and architecture, and glimpsing the warmth of their people.

You will also learn how these cities were built, how they dealt with the challenges and opportunities the water represents, and how they successfully developed in symbiosis with the water.

You will be enraptured by the atmosphere of these cities, by their unique history, and by their stunning beauty.
