Luca Zaggia unfolded with enthusiasm, deep knowledge and clarity the geographical imperatives that brought Venice to the
current geographical land/water form we know today. The historical events of her past, the geographical realities that came due unbidden were huge. The Venetians with their unrivaled trading force in the known world of the time, committed
forcefully and continuously to save their economy and their domain. Luca unfolds this backdrop story and brings us to the place and struggle of today's Venice.
Lucca is highly knowledgeable, and shared his information in a very organized and enjoyable way. His graphics were the best that I have seen in this type of presentation.
For over 40 years, Venice has been my favorite city. I've watched as tides, acqua alta, cruise ships, etc., have done their damage. Luca Zaggia gave a brilliant explanation of when, where, why, & how over the centuries Venice was imperiled. Superb, & many thanks.
This was just what I was hoping this seminar would be-- an in-depth presentation by a formidable expert in the topic. I was totally impressed with Luca's presentation--I came away learning such interesting facts about Venice, it's history and the factors causing it's current situation. So worthwhile and highly recommended.
excellent dash through the history of Venice and how disasters shaped her.
