The unified presentation was extremely well-done despite the fact that 11 students were involved in a long sequence of almost 100 slides. The graphics the teams produced were very exciting and innovative. I'll post those once tehy are fully available on line.
Even though these were complex and challenging topics, the preliminary results produced by the 3 teams came across very clearly and demonstrated an intriguing and persistent dichotomy in the way the primary quality of life ingedients play against each other. In the words of the students, Venice seems to truly be a "City of two faces". For example, although Venice provides a wide array of educational opportunities both in Vocational High Schools as well as at the University level, the employment opportunities are abundant only in the tourism and services industries. So, although one can get a degree in Computer Science at Ca'Foscari, such a degree would almost guarantee that one would have to leave Venice after graduation. There will be more explorations in these realms and hope to collaborate closely with the "40 per Venezia" on these exciting topics in the years to come.
