<http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Amdavadis4Ever/join>*Venice - the World's
Most Beautiful City?* <http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Amdavadis4Ever/join>

<http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Amdavadis4Ever/join>Is there a city more
legendary, more representative of artists' and engineers' dreams than
Venice? It's a city replete with endless canals, singing gondoliers,
elegant bridges, buildings, churches and cathedrals, built with incredible
patience and skill. Each painstakingly-built part of this city is a work of
art unto itself. <http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Amdavadis4Ever/join>

<http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Amdavadis4Ever/join>The name Venice is
derived from the ancient Adriatic Veneti people, who first moved to the
region in the 10th Century BC. The city was the historic capital of the
Republic of Venice. Throughout the ages, Venice has been known as "La
Dominante", "Serenissima", "Queen of the Adriatic", "City of Water", "City
of Masks", "City of Bridges", "The Floating City", and "City of Canals".
Luigi Barzini described it in The New York Times as "undoubtedly the most
beautiful city built by man".

<http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Amdavadis4Ever/join>The Republic of Venice
was a major maritime power during the Middle Ages and Renaissance, and a
staging area for the Crusades, as well as a very important center of
commerce (especially silk, grain, and spice) and art from the 13th Century
until the end of the 17th Century.

<http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Amdavadis4Ever/join>This made Venice a
wealthy city throughout most of its history. It is also known for its
several important artistic movements, especially the Renaissance period.
Venice has played an important role in the history of symphonic and
operatic music, and it is the birthplace of Antonio Vivaldi.

<http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Amdavadis4Ever/join>Some sources state that
the city is no longer sinking, but this is not yet certain, therefore a
state of alert has not been revoked. In May 2003, then Italian Prime
Minister Silvio Berlusconi inaugurated a project to evaluate the
performance of hollow floatable gates, which involved fixing a series of 78
hollow pontoons to the seabed across the three entrances to Venice's lagoon.

<http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Amdavadis4Ever/join>When tides are predicted
to rise above 110 centimeters, the pontoons will be filled with air,
causing them to float and block the incoming water from the Adriatic Sea.
This engineering is due to be completed this year.

<http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Amdavadis4Ever/join>The historical city is
divided into six areas or "sestiere" . These are Cannaregio, San Polo,
Dorsoduro , Santa Croce, San Marco and Castello. Each sestiere was
administered by a procurator and his staff. Nowadays, each sestiere is a
statistical and historical area without any degree of autonomy.

<http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Amdavadis4Ever/join>Each sestiere has its
own house numbering system. Each house has a unique number in the district,
from one to several thousand, generally numbered from one corner of the
area to another, but not usually in a readily understandable manner, to the
bane of some tourists. <http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Amdavadis4Ever/join>

one of Europe's most romantic cities.  It's not hard to see why.
