Mose system:

Progress

The go-ahead to construction of the Mose System was given by the "Comitatone" in April 2003, with the collaboration of all levels of State, Regional and Local Government.  Work has been underway for three and a half years and will last a total of eight years. A further ok was given by the comitatone in november 2006. According to the project, by 2012 (expected year of completion) Venice will be definitively protected from all high waters and the ever present risk of a catastrophic event such as 1966.





Work sites - For the last three and a half years, work has been proceeding in parallel at the three inlets of Lido, Malamocco and Chioggia.
