The city of Venice, Italy is joined with the Adriatic Sea to the east via three inlet channels. Storm events, originating from the Adriatic, have historically raised water levels in the Venice lagoon, flooding the city. The city has decided to construct retractable flood gate structures in each of the three inlets in order to temporarily mitigate floodwater levels during storm events.
