When people write of the dangers connected with large passenger ships, mention is only made of the major issues of the lagoon without considering that with its five hundred and fifty square kilometres it is the largest in the whole of the Mediterranean. This ‘environment’ is currently faced with increasingly more difficult challenges, starting with the general issues of excessive tourism or the precipitous fall in the permanent population of the central island. These challenges are related to difficulties connected with a future of more complex activity than that of tourism alone, and an inability to consider a more organic organisation of the city. They are challenges which call for change. Venice with its implicit resistance to change is a symbol of how much the antiquity of European cities is struggling to become the foundation of the development of modernity rather than an obstacle to it.
