While the furniture of Acqua Alta may look classic and traditional, it actually carries an alarming message. As the sea level is rising, floods in Venice get worse. Water is entering houses and restaurants, but still there is no solid policy to save the city. The pieces revive awareness by reflecting the effects of high tide; remnants like mollusks, barnacles and seaweed become casted ornaments for their legs. More than ever, in these COVID coloured days, we are confronted with the impact that water has on Venice.
