Venice – People Counting
For decades Venice has been trying to figure out how to manage the exponential number of tourists visiting the city.
While tourism forms part of the economy of the urban fabric, on the other hand the high presence of tourists adversely affects the quality of life of residents and puts a strain on an urban habitat unique in the world and already extremely fragile in itself.
Every year Venice receives 27 million tourists: 75% of whom are just one day visitors. These flows and quantities are becoming less and less sustainable, and create heavy pollution, congestion on public transport and in urban spaces, a reduction in the quality of the services offered and an increase in operating costs.
The answer is in new technologies.
And now and we can prove it with a concrete example: Axians Italia’s project for the Municipality of Venice.
