The Death of Venice (1976)

November 4, 1976

in Books

The Death of Venice, written with Sunday Times journalist Stephen Fay, covers the international efforts made to save Venice from sinking and how they were frustrated by Italian governments.

When Venice was founded in the 421, the level of the Adriatic was 16 feet lower than today. For centuries, the water level rose very slowly but that rate has increased in the last century with the weight of the buildings drivings them into the seabed.
