AbstractThe lagoon of Venice (N. Adriatic) is the most important in Italy (Fig. 1). Between 1840 and 1933 the tifial entrances facing the lagoon were controlled by six large jetties, after the construction of which more evident erosion phenomena appeared in some tourist resort beaches near the inlets. Detailed historical, movable bed models, and field studies have recently been conducted with the aim of defining a proper defence system for these beaches. The results of these studies are reported here.
