The formal business sector of Venice, Italy has evolved drastically since 1920 from a residential-based economy to one devoted mainly to tourism. This project explored these changes and documented the current formal economy of Venice, focusing on retail stores, hotels, and restaurants in the city. Additionally, the group compiled past projects' databases into a standardized, cohesive table that was used to observe the evolutionary trends in the formal retail sector. Finally, preliminary inquiries into the informal business sector and the economic impacts of flooding were conducted.
