    (ANSAmed) - VENICE, MAY 24 - Work started Thursday to save St Mark's Basilica in Venice from acqua alta, when the lagoon city floods with water.

    A system of underground run-off channels regulated by valves will keep the mosaic-covered entrance to the storied church dry.

    Currently it floods even with medium-height acqua alta.
