Central to the plan to protect Venice, some, or all, of the 78 barriers will one day be raised when the sea rises more than 110 centimeters to prevent damaging high tides from pushing into the lagoon city, a UNESCO heritage site built picturesquely but somewhat precariously among more than 120 islands.
