Venice Backstage offers a glimpse of the city's daily activities, transportation and services. The video below was commissioned by the Commune of Venice to give viewers a deeper look into the functionality of the city: How does the island city work as a complete system? How do the tides in the lagoon behave? How are the canals shaped? And the embankments? Venice backstage helps one to imagine a question which always seems to capture my curiosity - What exactly lies underneath the city of Venice?
