How does Venice work?

Venice Backstage

I’ve never been to Venice, but like many people, I’d love to someday. This mini-documentary is just under 20 minutes, shares a bit about how the city came to be in the first place, and looks into the constant maintenance and upkeep that is necessary simply to keep its system of canals, bridges, and walkways working—as well as keeping the buildings standing. It’s an impressive undertaking.
