Venice is undoubtedly one of the most written upon cities and certainly the most photographed one. And yet another guide on Venice? Five walking tours take you to discover the modern Venice, the less known side of the city, hidden and far away from the well known places. These proposed itinerates take you to the new residential areas and restored warehouse docks, to the works of Carlo Scarpa and Tadao Ando, to modern restructurations and the controversial and much discussed MOSE project (Experimental Electromechanical Module) against the high water. Venice's unrealized but as famous projects are also included, where you can let your imagination take you to Loius Kahn's Congress Centre or Le Corbusier's hospital. Current aerial photographs showcase Venice from unknown perspectives.
