Venice is going under water - level 1, A12
Venice is a beautiful city. Venice is in the north of Italy. People built Venice on many islands. There are 117 islands in Venice. Venice has beautiful houses and many great people lived there. For example, Antonio Vivaldi was born in Venice.
Venice has a problem. It is going down and down into the water. It is going down by 4 centimetres every 10 years. Maybe it is not much, but it is a problem because there are more and more floods every year in Venice. And people must use bridges if they want to walk in the city.
In the last 170 years, the city went down 60 centimetres. If it goes down again by 50 centimetres, there will be a big problem for the people who live there.
