Venice, the city built on water

We're planning a trip to Venice. I am fascinated by the fact that they built an entire city in a lagoon and am somewhat flabbergasted that I haven't been able to find a single place in the city where I can see a model or an exhibit that explains the construction. Is there really no place where I can learn more about Venetian engineering?

Help me find this book set in Venice!

Book search: looking to find the title/author of a mystery set in Venice. Likely NOT Donna Leon, the mystery features a married British couple in Venice on vacation. Plot elements may include a suitcase of books, a murder that takes place at a film festival or fashion show. The couple become involved in solving the case. Published in the last decade, perhaps. Thanks!

I'm going to be in Venice for the next week and a half! Please give me some recommendations for food and sightseeing. Thanks!

Hi all. I am looking for recommendations for food in Venice (anything from a Paninoteca to a Ristorante). I've read that it is difficult to find good food in Venice, so I'm hoping the Metafilter hive mind can help me out. In addition, any recommendations for sightseeing would be great. Especially non-traditional/off the beaten path stuff. Thanks again.

What on Earth was going on in Venice?

I was in Venice for a few days at the end of March, and several times saw young people in the street participating in a weird ritual: they would read out a passage from a hand-made poster, the crowd would laugh, and someone would attack them with a foodstuff -- I saw a lot of flour, once a meat tray, and an unfortunate soul having canned whipped cream injected down his pants. What? [more inside]

Anybody know who is "Icam" of "Venice"?

Last week, Open Culture posted a link to a breathtaking little video of Venice posted on Vimeo. The only thing Vimeo reveals about its video artist is the name Icam from France and that they have 38 other videos posted. I would really like to know more about this elusive figure who captured the colorful, yet melancholy, beauty of Venice so perfectly! Anybody know anything further about the video artist Icam?

ISO old website

I remember a website from a few years ago that showed three different still photography scenes that morphed into one another, showing that scene over the course of 24 hours. These scenes had accompanying recordings of the surroundings. If I remember correctly, the scenes were a park, outside a bus station or some kind of intersection, and a quiet canal in Venice. I would like to find this site again. Any help?

Please evaluate my route from Italy to Spain by car

I plan to drive from Venice, Italy to Valenica, Spain in April or May 2009 using the following route. I will stay for a few days or weeks in little spots along the way. I should have about six weeks in total. I mostly want to see a little of Spain and Italy, the French Riviera, Montpellier, Marseilles and finish at Valencia. Apart from that anything else I should try to see? Any parts of the chosen route I should avoid? What's driving like along that route? Any rental car companies which will let me pick up in Italy and drop off in Spain?

Your ideas for nontraditional, off the beaten path, interesting, insightful things to do or see in or close to Venice, Florence, and Rome, Italy?

What are your favorite nontraditional, nontouristy, alternative, culturally-insightful things to do in or near Venice, Florence, and Rome? I mean the deeper anthropological kind of culture, not museums, opera, etc. I'm not looking for the usual must-see tourist destinations or the things that epitomize a city. I want the fascinating little finds you accidentally stumbled on and loved, but which few or no tours would have found because they aren't "sights". If it can give me a glimpse of how contemporary Italians see the world, to appreciate a bit more what it's like to be them, that's a turbo bonus. No points off for plain old fun activities either.
