This study aims to bring new light to the importance of water in the shaping of architecture, urban and territorial spaces on Venice (Italy) and its surrounding area from a historical perspective. In its first section, it depicts the process of modernization of Venice (19th and 20th centuries) revealing how important the preservation of a 'water-city' image was in the decision making of the aforementioned process. The second section turns its attention to Venice's hinterland (Laguna and Terraferma) in order to reflect on the substantial role that water supply and transportation played in the development of Venice, a city poor on natural resources, allowing the formation of new territory (interconnected with water).
