Sea Level Rise: Ca' Foscari supports restoration of Andreco artwork
Sea Level Rise: Ca' Foscari supports restoration of Andreco artwork

Unveiled the restoration of Sea Level Rise, a project merging art and science, made by visual artist Andreco in 2017. The lines and numbers identifying the sea levels that could be reached in the next few decades are once again visible on the wall of the train station which faces the Grand Canal and Piazzale Roma in Venice. They were painted by Andreco five years ago and are the first mural on the Grand Canal. Next to it there is a six-metre-high installation on the resilience of the lagoon’s fragile ecosystem.

Welcome message from Anna Comacchio, Director of the Department

"We help our students develop the management and entrepreneurial skills that are most requested today.
Here in Venice, a city in which culture and sustainability are levers for the future, we aim to create knowledge that will be useful in the context of the digital revolution — a context in which economic growth must intertwine with social development.”

Anna Comacchio,
Director of the Department of Management
