100 thoughts on “Why Did We Build Venice?

  1. They will never allow this city to sink. Engineers the world over will collaborate to save this collection of buildings, although the unstoppable tech tonic plate is a little worrying. Perhaps they can make it float.

  2. Noone of us built venice! When a title starts with a lie in the first word "WE" , this video is too bad for the trash can, you better dispose it in the toilet and flush several times.

  3. So – while not The leaning Tower of Piza – Italians made the mistake of building Venice on soft, water-sodden ground. Now, Venice is flooding, and people bray about ‘global warming’, for which same crowd blames capitalism and Western Civilization. Solution: Americans should give Italy more money. Ugh 😀

  4. Venice people in French are Véniciens, Phoeniciens 🙂 Phoenecians. They built anywhere they wanted. Amcient Tartaria architecture is found worldwide

  5. The Benefits for letting in refugees, seriously??
    Putting a side the fact that they were people forced from there home by other civilisations invading their territory.
    Venices location of a natural defence of a lagoon made sure outsiders wouldn't and couldn't affect its economical boom and strong trading routes.
    It's pure evidence of the complete opposite reason. And an example of why Trump Wall would be an economical success.

  6. And then came Napoleon… conquered Venice and sold the republic to Austria. The great Italian poet Ugo Foscolo once said him (briefly): "You were the Chosen One! It was said that you would destroy the Sith, not join them. bring balance to the force, not leave it in darkness". Definitely said something similar. A very bad day.

  7. You started off with the lie about climate change and sea level rise in the first minute. I did not listen to any more of your stupid video because I am burned out with lies about sea level rise and global warming. It is time to deal with you liars in the harshest way possible.

  8. That thing about refugees was pretty weird, considering that the germanic invaders were actually escaping from the huns, and ended up conquering Italy…

  9. We? It was slaves from dalmatia and balkans, with timber from dalmatia. And then they were sold to ootomans by venetians as slaves for 600years. Nothing noble in that city.

  10. I'm downvoting this video for the refugee political statement at the end.
    Many of Europe's current problems are being caused by refugee crisis. You can’t just mix incompatible cultures like that and expect benefits.

  11. normal people : lets build city next to some river or on the coast of the sea
    Italians : Mama mia, lets build city here in the fucking swamp

  12. You know Paris, France? In English, they pronounce it “Paris,” but everyone else pronounces it without the “s” sound, like the French do. But with Venezia, everyone it the English way, “Venice.” Like The Merchant of Venice and Death in Venice . . . Why though?! Why isn’t the title Death in Venezia?! Are you friggin’ mocking me?! It takes place in Italy so use the Italian word, damn it! That shit pisses me off! Bunch of dumbasses!

  13. If I were to believe that sea levels are actually rising at the rate the UN claims and Venice is sinking at 1mm a year (Ill just factor the last 100 years so 10cm) that would equate to nearly 3 feet of change. That hasnt happened. Obama just bought a 9 million dollar house at sea level about 50m from the sea, think about that.

  14. I'm sure there's a logical reason for it being built, but I always liked to think of it as a, "Fuck you, that's why~" kind of thing.

  15. Sonded like you could have gotten cheaper away with just googleing your way to this info.
    Man the Meaning of a traveling videos is to get down in to the nittygritty since you're at the site. Show us something cultural that internet easily can't provide. It was informal but unpersonal.

  16. Hey, I really like this narrator, and I am sure I have heard him before in some other channel. Can someone educate me please.

  17. Venice control Trade because rather than going to war against Ottoman Empire, Venice instead allied with Ottoman and that's the reason why they control spices from India while other european powers hate Ottoman so much, they rather travel as far as cape of good hope in southern africa rather than ask permission from Ottoman.

  18. Refugees fleeing invading armies hundreds of years ago in no way correlates to today’s economic “refugee crisis” where they are fleeing their own failing countries in order to live in prosperous ones. Had to ruin a great video with PC garbage at the end.

  19. Venice become a prosperous economy, and the born of titles. The other thing is, Venice was constructed on a wetland. They keep up constructing up.

  20. Soo THAt's why Northern Italians have blondish hair. Jesus these Venetians had all Germanic tribes roll over them. They're like on the middle of the highway apparently. Germanic tribes fucking up Europe since… oof
