Why to Contribute

To our Digital Community Memory

Dear Venetians and Venitian lovers,we all remember the night of high water on November 12 and 13, 2019.A dark night in which Venice saw her fragility and we with her. It is fundamental to recall, recount and pass on those hours in which we remembered the delicate balance of the lagoon and the community that lives of the community that inhabits it.

In order to preserve and enhance the memories of the inhabitants and visitors of Venice in relation to extreme natural events that occurred in the lagoon, the AquaGranda Digital Archive was created. It is a participatory project that aims to create a multimedia archive on the phenomenon of high tide.

The main goal of this initiative is to collect, with your help and through social media, images and experiences about high tide and the impacts on your life.

This, in order to create a digital community memory for the lagoon inhabitants and visitors of today and tomorrow. Your collaboration is very important: we are grateful if you decide to help us in the realization of this project by sending us materials that tell about your experiences on the exepctional high water of November 12-13, 2019.
