Venice will work through an autonomous driving system. In the island, moving is hard: public transportation is slow, with no capacity enough; the boats crossing the city are crumbling the foundations of the building and the flooding problem remains unsolved.
The autonomous underground project solves all the lacks that are affecting the usability of the city. The new transportation system uses the old routes of the ferry, duplicating the lines and the capacity and creating new stations as new islands in which Venice can hold different activities. Last but not least, these new buildings will work as a barrier against Venice floodings.
