I went to Venice for an extended weekend for my brothers 21st Birthday. Myself, my Mum and Dad and my brother and his girlfriend all went out for what we knew was going to be an epic, to say the least, weekend.
Walking in Venice you see amazing palaces rich in history, you see the canals, the boats and all the wonderful environment of the city, but have you ever asked yourself how Venice was built??
It’s unbelievable !!!
The foundations of Venice’s palaces follow the same system of indirect foundation: think of a swamp ; you have to solidify the zone and then put wooden pointed knotty and short poles until youfind a hard and compact layer of clay in the soil, called caranto which is located at a dozen meters below the surface soil layer of the lagoon.
