Would you like to visit the MOSE?
2 May, 2007
To defend Venice from the high tide (or acqua alta) there is now a huge construction site where the sea meets the lagoon, here they are going to build a system of mobile dams: the MOSE.
Mose means Modello Sperimentale Elettromeccanico, and it was the name of a old (1988- 1992) experimental project, but the name of the Bible prophet seemed so nice that they kept it.
There are a lot of talking about these works and a lot of different opinions about their practical utility.
But, and this is the news, it seems that in a couple of months there will be daily tours to the works for all the tourists that are interested in this new Venice wonder.
